Description 

About 4.1 miles up the canyon, this scruffy cliff rises out of the creek, opposite the highway. It is published on p. 71 of Gillett's 2009 guidebook. Unless its level is low, the creek would be dangerous to cross, and the ledges at the base would be underwater. While driving by a few years ago, I noticed two bolted routes on this cliff. On August 4, I suggested it to Mike Endicott as a way to escape the hot sun. It faces NW and has morning shade.

The first pitch climbs difficult slab past five bolts. With our fingertips, we brushed lichen off of crucial edges. The slab supports an undisturbed climax, old-growth lichen forest. If someone were to visit with a brush, I would plead for selective thinning, only where necessary, rather than clear cutting.The second pitch leads past a #1 Camalot placement and a #2, before a short traverse left, past a bent, partly driven "Army" angle piton. Three bolts lead up a short headwall. Behi...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

As in many areas published on MP, the above "Prime Time" graph is bogus.
