Set your feet up, maybe with a heel hook. Make a pretty big throw up to a sloping hold. Lock off and move up and around to top out.Awkward, guaranteed to make you give it a couple of goes before you stick that throw....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

So, getting to this do you hike clear up onto the bench below Liberty Cap buttress and then descend? That seems like the only way to do it. I am just hoping for a somewhat shorter approach.

F**K this area... the annoying ass hike is not worth the crappy quality of rock. Completely blank faces all over the place - so sad.

ALSO BE CAREFUL!!!!

When I was up last we encountered RATTLESNAKES!

Was scary, be careful when popping your head around corners looking for lines - with how slippery the rock is, it is easy for them to fall down into the cracks and crevices.
