This is a probably the second larget craglet with at least 10 easy to moderate routes. It is the middle of the obvious craglets here and lies basically east of the second pullout/campsite on the right.

Note, some use the pullout/campsite for target practice for .22, 9mm, and shotguns. The approach goes right past their target range.

Left -> right:

A. Unknown A, 1p, 95', bolts & gear.
B. Unknown B, 1p, 95', TR?.
C. Tropical Delight?, 8?, 1p, gear.
D. Unknown D, 8+, 2p, 95', bolts.
E. Last Mango In Paris, 8, 2p, 105', bolts.
F. Trundle Fish, 5, 1p, 90', gear or TR.
G. The Boardwalk, 6 PG-13, 1p, 90', bolts & gear.
H. Don't Shoot, I'm Climbing, 5, 1p, 90', gear +/- bolt.
I. Unknown H, 2 PG-13, 1p, 90', bolts +/- gear.
J. Unknown I, 8- PG-13, 1p, 95', bolts & gear.
K. Unknown J, 5 PG-13, 1p, 90', bolts +/- gear.

Getting There 

Wander up fairly open forest keeping an eye out for a dome with a roof in its middle. It should be 15 minutes or less and probably 200 feet or less elevation gain from FR 217.

This is a nice climb that utilizes some natural features for protection. Ascend a slab with nice edges past 2 bolts, then slot a wire on the left and possibly a purple TCU (#0) in a horizontal. Continue up past a bolt. You can stay left with a #1 Camalot on the left or clip the last bolt of the line to the right....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

I think it is very important to point out that this area is a *designated* area for gun enthusiasts with signs indicating that shooting is permitted. This isn't just an area where people come to party, congregate, or camp and sometimes someone brings a gun. This area is *designated* for shooting so expect people to be there shooting, and since there is no specific gun range, expect them to be shooting near you and hopefully not at you!
