Description 

This three bolt route is in your face from the time you clip the first bolt until you get to the anchors. The crux of the route is getting established on the vertical face. While Ian originally graded this 13b, I am not sure that this would clock in at V8.

This is a fun, technical, powerful route in a superb, excluded setting.

I am not sure how Ian and Stew ever found this little crag, but I am glad they did. KUDOS.

Location 

This route is easily located once you find the boulder. Look for three bolts perched on the steep to slaby face. The face will look easy and short at first glance, but once you get off the route, you will have a better perspective.

Protection 

You will need three draws for the route and two for the bolt-hanger anchor. You can easily set-up a toprope for this route by walking to the top of the rock and reaching down to the anchors. There are hangers on top but not lowering anchors, so you will eventually have to do this little hike regardless to retrieve your gear.

I hiked up there today, so here's my input. The hike isn't that bad, I went about ten yards past the gate and went straight up the hill, couldn't have missed the cliff. I could even see it at a few points just after leaving the road. There's no snow on the ground, even though the rest of the canyon has six inches, so that's cool. The cliff was nice and warm too, even though the temps were only about 40.

As for the route, it doesn't look all that hard, but I'm sure it is. I want to get up there and start working it soon... Also, the hangers are missing.

It's a beautiful spot and a neat looking climb.

That really sucks that some lame wannabe stole the hangers. "Vitamen G" is a great little boulder problem route, and I am glad that someone has checked it out. It's a very pretty spot at the top of Cheyenne Canyon!
