Do you want one more pitch after slab climbing at The Dome/Little Dome? Look no furthur! This pitch is the perfect way to finish the day. Clip 3 bolts as you stem, lieback, or use offwidth techniques to surmount this beautiful climb. This is an old fashioned South Platte 5.9 peppered with a + here and there.


Find a huge boulder several hundred feet directly below The Little Dome. One side has a monster chimney splitting it, the other side is the climb you want. The new South Platte guidebook will show you exactly where to find the climb.


3 bolts and a #3 Camalot are all you need. Those not solid at the grade may want a large cam or Big bro as well.
