  • Description 

    The Rudder is a low angle formation hidden in the trees on the north side of The Keel. The east face looks filthy with lichen, moss, and pine needles, but it is actually a fun scramble.

    Getting There 

    Climb The Keel. From the back, head NE down the gully to the base. It is a serious bushwhack.

    This is a very easy scramble and probably only worth climbing if you have just done The Keel and the North Wing and want to add something else. You would have to be crazy to hike in just for this.......[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
