Lowering off after my first lead in Colorado.
The Coyote's Tooth is the detached flake that sits just left of the center of the wall. Climb the right edge of the flake past one bolt to a bolted anchor.
A couple TRs can be done from the anchor.
1 - West Arete (5.11)
2 - North Face (5.10).
Look for the detached 30 foot tall flake that is left of center of the cliff.
Quite an aesthetic climb!

This climb would be a classic in my book if it had two more bolts. Unless I missed something, even the easiest line to the one bolt, located perhaps five feet below the anchor, involves some moves that are certainly not give-aways and could lead to a truly inconvenient rescue scenario. (You'll know what I mean after you do the approach.) With the existing protection in place, this is more of a climb for somebody comfortable leading several notches beyond the grade and essentially soloing the climb to set up a toprope.

There is plenty of pro on the route, you sling the horn and then as you make the move around the corner there is a nice place for a cam, then a bolt. The natural protection available negates the need for any more bolts.
