There are a handful of bolted routes (5.9 - 5.10a) that lead to the very top of the rock (about 150'). Midway anchors provide a rap station so you only need one rope. There's a mixed climb on the left (5.9+), along with another climb to the very right (5.8). There's also a 5.11 just to the left of the 5.8, but I can't recall if this is bolted or not. If not, you can climb one of the easier bolted routes and set up a TR from the midway anchors.
The Shield of the Titans is the most apparent rock formation in this area. Its also marked by a large black streak running up the middle. There are cairns that mark a well placed trail. Please try to stay on the trail as much as possible as this area recently burned and the vegetation is still recovering.

There are anchors about 80 feet up the wall that you can rap from, or skip the anchors and continue climbing the heady second section to the anchors at the top of the rock. From there, rap to the midway anchors then rap down. I'm not sure, but to be safe use a 60m rope. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
