Many quality problems in this area, the gem of which is an overhang problem called Portrait of an Artist.

Getting There 

From the Wedge Arete, continue east, the trail will curve right for a bit, then you'll see a faint trail through the aspens going uphill. Portrait is the first boulder off of this trail. You'll know you're going the right way if just after going uphill at the junction you have to jump over a downed aspen.

Locals call it V4, the rating I used here, although it's sandbagged as per the Gunny Valley norm. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
