Description 

The climb goes up the left corner next to the prominent roof. Follow the crack up for your line. It is a little slabby. The hardest moves are definitely the last 4 feet. It's a tall top rope so have fun.


Protection 

Two bolts were put in at the top last year for lowering, bring something to clip them.

These bolts were removed sometime this year. As a side note, this fun lead and there is great pro right at the top of the climb for an anchor.

As of today, there were two bolts at the top of the climb, and they are easily accessible from the top. No bolts on any other route though.

Note: For what it's worth in my guidebook (Front range topropes) this route is called Dihedral route and the Dihedral route on this site is called Corner Climb

One of the bolts now has a spinner of a hanger.

I replaced those spinners and installed camo'd hardware on this route.

There are definitely 2 bolts at the top that are easy to clip in with just some locking biners and webbing. It's a fun route which I would say is more like a 5.6-5.7 in the beginning 2/3, and then it gets closer to a 5.8 for the top 1/3. Good for beginners. You can make this route more challenging by staying to the right or by working on jamming the crack near the top.
