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.

This route starts up a low angle water groove that eventually ends in a large 3 foot pod. From here, clip the first and only bolt, then trend right to the broken corner system where you can place a solid nut, and move up and left towards the summit crack placing gear along the way. This is a fun, moderate lead that would be good for the newer trad leader.There are no anchors. Bring a long cord to build 2 piece anchor at the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

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.
