The top of P1 is the triangular, hanging flake above and left of the climber, who is on Nocturne. The route in the description goes up the right-facing  dihedral formed by the flake.  The crack on the left side of the the flake is reminiscent of the start of Vedauwoo's  Horn's Mother (although much easier...probably 10b).  A #2, #3, and #4 Camalot will protect it.

US Pro Cycling Tour from the top of the Brown Palace.  This is the main peloton.  They were 2 minutes behind a breakaway of 13 riders.  We still don't know if the break stayed away.  Excellent bird's-eye view of the race.

Above the first crux. Only a short segment of the flake is loose, but it is wedged in tightly. RPs fit in well above and below the loose bit.

Gov. Mule goes up the left-facing dihedral, then traverses left 8 feet to the roof crack. Rap from the tree on the right. I think that heading up and right on a diagonal crack will link-up with what appears to be a long, low angle offwidth.

The excellent 5.8 chimney on the upper part of Breeder's Cup.  When the chimney tapers, climb out to the right to the Neighsayer anchors. Although there is no off width on this route, a #4 c4 is good to have on the lower half.
