This rectangular rock's clean West Face features four distinct lines and can be identified by a small (3 foot) hueco on it's bottom left side. The independent lines from right to left are the Right Arete (V2), the sloper problem (V4), the Short Bus (V8) and a nasty V5 from the hueco to the left arete. One can also ascend only the top few moves of the short bus around v4 and sit start the left arete at V0+

Getting There 

The Short Bus is located some 20 yards South of Skunk Rub Boulder just detached from the lower ridge. Also, Fromunda Boulder is immediately behind the Short Bus on the lower ridge and Dead Tree Rock is above on the upper ridge. Also in the immediate area is 2x4 boulder on the lower ridge, just to the south.

A nice clean but short slapping arete. You can also use a 2-3 finger pocket on the face. Power up off the ground and fire up the arete, the topout involves no insecurity on the monster holds....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
