Cate on the crux.
|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 >>>|
Start sitting in a ~6 foot deep hole with a left hand rail and right hand pinch with the fingers in a vertical seam. This is yet another fun moderate in the vicinity of the Dali Wall. It features a thick, horizontal, quartzite band with a few pinches in it.
Head uphill from Clear Blue Skies
for about 30-40 yards as if you were heading for Frosted Flakes
. You will have to climb over a low angle slab, at which point you will see the meadow of Frosted Flakes
. A chute will be visible down and to the left with a prominent, horizontal, quartzite band about 5 feet below the summit of the overhanging face. This is it.
Two pads are preferable, but it is probably doable with one. You climb out of an angled chute, so the fall is never far.
