Description 

This is one of several crags which makes up the Second Band of the Country-Western crags. The rock consists of low angle slab climbing on good granite.

There can be a bit of an ant problem at the base of the routes so be vigilant.

Getting There 

There are two approaches. First, one can come in from the west by walking under Tomahawk Buttress. One can also approach the rock by heading slightly uphill and west from Vrain Child; a five-minute walk.

Climbing Season

For the South Fork of St. Vrain Canyon area.
