Making the move on the Left Bulge. 5.10 As rated ...


This area encompasses the rocks below Distant Dancer Pinnacle and Tree Slab which sit on two separate tiers.The top tier contains some fantastic moderate problems and is a favorite place to warm up or be introduced to Flagstaff. The lower tier has a fun traverse that can be done mostly with no hands. This collection of rocks deserves a better name, but two different guidebooks have sealed its fate.

Getting There 

Locate Beer Barrel and Tree Slab then go down the hill. Or from the main parking area, take all the little trails that head to the right. If you haven't gone more than 50 yards you're probably there.

There's an intermediate which is a tremendous help, but you basically have to throw your left for the far left flake, extending your upper body. I've seen the feet done differently ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
