This is a small slabby formation 200' up the steep gully immedeately west of the Narrows. It can be located by the clean slab surrounded by discontinuous rock.

There are only two routes on the formation, a nice moderate crack, and a terrifying (in its current state) slab route. There are a couple good cracks up the gully to the right approx 100' higher (and around the corner) that will be cleaned and led soon.

Getting There 

Park at the pulloff at the base of Mechanical Man, and scramble up the gully just west of the Narrows. Use extreme caution when approaching, as there is a lot of loose rock, that would fall directly onto traffic. When you reach a cliffband that appears pretty sketchy, head as far left as you can go, and traverse across the top.

Red Fox 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  CO : Lyons : ... : Vrain Dead
This is a great climb that has its crux in the first 30 feet in v-slot/left-facing dihedral that uses a finger crack in the corner. The climbing becomes much more moderate after the thin fingers of the corner. At the top of the dihedral, move left to a good crack and go up to the horn. Move slightly left and follow the finger crack and up to a ledge. You can belay here or keep going up to the overhang and out its left side....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
