Below the scramble to reach the Far Left area, the trail drops and rounds a corner to the overhanging juggy, chalky start of Valgedur’s Tooth. Continuing right and dry all year, is the vertical start of Isabel’s Eyes, then the scooped-dihedral start to Alpin Lily’s Masterpiece. Around the corner is the flake start of Song of Sabine. These climbs join the continuing traverse of Julia Raye’s Journey and above looms a huge roof-dihedral system.

Further right, the trail ascends to the top of the big ledge of crumbly coal-like rock and the short, but clean face and corner systems of Petra’s Preference and Carmen the Gypsy Girl. This is also where Julia Raye’s Journey either ends or begins. Right of this is the face/corner system of Francesca’s Face and further right, the amazing Julia’s Arête. Around the other side of this sharp arête lie the interesting routes of the Far Right area.

Getting There 

Keep walking along the base and around the corner.

This aesthetic arête first climbs thin pinches directly on the arête for 10 feet or so then moves to the left. Good pockets, edges, and the sharp arête on the right make for a very aesthetic route....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
