Okay, it may be a bit controversial to enter these routes, but the rock is on NP land, and they've been described in various guidebooks.This is a nice, face climb that challenges the average climber. You'll get a decent workout for a short climb.Find a set of 4 bolts on the left side of the west face. You should probably bring wires or possibly small cams to protect the stretch to the first bolt. The crux seemed to be between the 1st & 2nd bolts....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
