Half & Half Crag sit's just below the Shark Fin.


This crag lies directly uphill from Slot Rock and provides a wonderful group of bolted routes in one small alcove. More exactly, it is uphill of Woodstone, yet below Sharkfin. Some routes in the area are under 100', so you can rap off with a single 60m rope. 'Rouge Element' however is about 130' and requires a summit walkoff. Although while at the top of that rock, you can tag a few other routes such as: Yellow Butterfly & Blood in the Water on the Sharkfin for a nice tour.

(See Rock & Ice magazine #116, Summer 2002 for a thorough guide)

Getting There 

This stone lies fairly low and north in the group and is likely best approached from the Baldpate parking lot (Romer Rouse Trail Head). It's best to ascend and pass Slot Rock and Woodstone on the right and then turn left and pop up into the Woodstone-Half&Half Alcove.

There is a good conglomeration of 5.10 routes in this small alcove.

'Crags' slab climbing at its best. Sack-up for this one. "It ain't no sport climb - it's a bolted rock climb!" Stellar slab climbing, edges, and pasting.Start on a network of web-like seams in the middle of the wall, followed by a crux roof sequence. Scramble over the top and down onto a platform on the SW corner of the Shark Fin.Extra credit: while there climb the short, 5-bolt, but sweet Yellow Butterfly (5.9+) on Shark Fin. Walk off, down around to the left (north) to return to the base i...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
