Description 

A little, lonely slab down the hill from the Penis Rock. The rock is a little crumbly and there is only one bolted route, but I think it's worth checking out if you're looking for an easy sport climb. This makes a good tick for someone just starting their sport leading career.


Getting There 

Go to the Penis Rock area. Walk past all the climbs in the Gully area and keep walking down the gully a ways. The slab is the only obvious hunk of rock on the right side of the gully.

The bolts are a little hard to see at first, but the climb goes straight up the middle of this photo.

This route is very slabby, frictiony climbing. Up to the second bolt it is very easy, almost walkable. Then you have to make a step to the right at the second bolt, the friction becomes a little tougher, up to the hardest moves to the anchor bolts...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

I thought I'd touched and at least scoped out most everything there. Just shows to go ya!

Yep. I think the easy routes like to be overlooked. I'm aware of at least a few more routes that aren't on MP yet that I plan on climbing and posting.
