Comments: I will try to get some photos and GPS coordinates up soon, since I live close by.

The Moai Boulder with its tall face looks back down toward the Estes Valley where the treatment plant is, but every time you go, you will indeed find a blank face that looks like nobody's done it in a decade. Rain washes the chalk off, and each ascent seems like a first ascent.

The boulder with the cave and the route going right to a finger crack is Flatanger.

Comments: The easiest way to get down is to just do a single 30m rap off the chains of Rest in Peace, which are 15 feet west of where you top this route out. Just walk toward the Continental Divide and you'll see them.

Comments: The names and grades those two routes have been confirmed with the FA, local guide Eli Helmuth, and added to the database. They are Thumbs Up, 5.10- and Thumb Up My Arse, 5.10+ or perhaps 5.11-. Time will tell as consensus grows.

Also note that you can descend off the northwest face in a single 30m rap from the chains atop Rest in Peace.

This route has been updated, and the missing bolt at the crux has been replaced. Have fun!
