Description 

This is essentially the middle of the Second Band. There are two bolted routes and potential for some grovelly trad undertakings if you're bored.

Getting There 

Park at the east end of a large dirt pullout just west of the Big Narrows. Walk back east and head up a loose water runoff on the north side of the road. Hike a minute or two until you hit an old fence, follow that east, then contour along the hill until you find the rocks. This area is a bit disjointed, and it may take a couple trips to understand the layout easily. You could also head up from Vrain Child, and this is mentioned in The Platitudes description.

Start up the left line of bolts. The difficulties begin right away with thin .11 climbing that eases after a few clips. Make your way across some lower angle ground, then attack the crux headwall. Good luck. A "slippery" unprotected 5.11 crescent can be TR'd to the left of the start. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
