A) Bug-Eyed Monster. B) Tom Thumbs Tallywag. C) Ma...
This is situated just above Tom Thumbs Tallywag. The approach was made from above. P1) Follow nail heads with tie-offs to a slippery summit.
This is located above Tom Thumbs Tallywag. See the photo of the Mt. Garfield area. It lies in the same canyon as The Fortress. Walk 15 minutes from the Garfield parking area west parallel to I-70 passing a fence line.

Climbed this a few days ago with my buddy, Noah. Great route, Paul! It certainly seemed more stable than the Sword. Wondered if we were the 2nd ascent?
I needed something more casual after belaying Noah up the 2nd ascent of Tom Thumb's Tallywag being convinced it was going to fall over and kill us both. Fun, fun, fun! Can't wait to go back already!

Have a go at Mad Dogs and Englishmen... you might be able to approach the start from the bottom, but I suggest crampons.
