Start up some step rock, making a difficult pull around a bulge at the second bolt. Then continue up thin climbing on the lower angle rock above to the anchor.


This is located just right of Continental Breakfast. Start on the rightward sloping ground of the dirt mound.

This route is not very fun. It has a little something to dissuade everyone. Slabmasters will be put off by the Rifle-esque start, and Rifle hone-masters will hate the finish. The upper slab is actually pretty cool once you figure it out, but who likes smearing on polished limestone?
