This crag gets shade in the morning and sun in the afternoon. Its good seasons are spring, late fall, and winter. The rock is a limestone/quartzite/sandstone mix. It can definitely get crowded, but sometimes you'll be there alone.
Once at the most left route at Pup Tent, follow the trail west till it bends around a corner.

Pass 2 bolts worth of less than ideal rock, then pass a short .12a crux to a rest. Faceclimb a beautiful headwall on small crimps, edges, and sidepulls with a few dynamic moves for 4 bolts. The headwall is the crux. This has sustained climbing to an easier top-out. This is a totally awesome route - best on the wall!...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
