Sunny, on a late June morning. We saw 4 or 5 parties hike past us as we were climbing. It was a Saturday, but I would call that crowded. The rock is good quality granite - great for friction and not rough on my hands.

Getting There 

The approach is the same as other climbs at Jurassic Park. The approach hike took us 20 minutes. Left Hand Rock was the first rock with a line of bolts we saw.


A. Left Dihedral, 9, 1p, gear.
B1. Guilted Willy, 9, 1p, 85', TR.
B2. ?Gilded Lily?, 8, 1p, 90', bolts.
C. Lilies of the Valley, 8+, 1p, 90', gear.
D. Dark Days, 8, 1p, 90', gear.
E. Byron's Ladder, 2, 1p, 95', bolts.
FE. Groove/chimney, 4, 1p, 95', TR.
GE. Face, ?, 1p, 90', TR.
H. T-Rect, 7+, 1p, 70', gear & bolts.
I. Triceratops, 8- PG-13, 1p, 80', bolts & gear?

Thanks, Croy.

August 24, 2009 – Left Hand Rock - I rope soloed a new, unknown 5.2 sport route right of Dark Days (the deep chimney just right of Lilies of the Valley and ?Gilded Lily?). This is an all sport route with 9 bolts. It starts right and below a stack of flakes, straight up and gains a rib. It follows the right side of edge of water streak. It goes to brown painted hangers and rap rings. It is a good option for starting newbies and training lead climbers. The bolt place...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
