The majority of these boulders are located within the Mt Evans Wilderness Area, which is regulated & patrolled by the US Forest Service. Climber MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Although this one doesn't look like much, looks can be deceiving. Begin matched on a rail about shoulder height, slide up and left and clamber straight to the top via a befuddling sequence of moves. On the FA some 6 years ago, my FA burn involved 3 ridiculous ticky-tacky crossovers, hence the name. Better beta has been sorted out since, but this one remains much more interesting than it looks for folks looking for lines in this grade range.

Location 

Just before you get to boulders forming the "Bierstadt Corridor" ... venture around to the right of the first boulder to the side facing the willows and climb the center of the northwest face.

Protection 

A couple organics will do.
