Description 

Reese's Pieces is a somewhat disjointed, West-facing rock band sitting high above Camp 5 and the Lincoln Creek 4WD road. It contains about 10 routes (trad, sport, and mixed gear). It is a remote and scenic location with its steep approach and relatively low number of routes filtering out most Independence Pass craggers.


Getting There 

Reese's Pieces has its own approach trail which starts about 100' up the road from Camp Site 5 at some cairns. The trail skirts a small talus field to the left, then it begins to switchback dramatically through the aspen forest to tackle the steep slope. Eventually it opens up at treeline where it meets the larger talus field just below the crag. Plan on 20-30 minutes approach time.

This route climbs the obvious left-leaning dihedral on the right side the West face of Reese's Pieces. It starts with steep face moves protected by bolts down low, then it gains the ledge just below the dihedral. One final bolt protects entry moves into the dihedral. Stems and opposition moves are needed on both sides of the dihedral as you work your way through the crux early. Cruise up and reach for the big jug ledge on the right side, then finish to the 2-bolt anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
