In the nice handcrack after the crux.

Starts with a couple of face moves up past a bolt to the finger crack. The finger crack gets wider as you climb and turns into good hands by the end of the first pitch. The second pitch starts with a nice unprotected traverse to a wide roof. Climb the roof to good easy hands and the up the slab. Build an anchor. Walk off or rap from Nazi's Demise anchor. Both pitches are very short, I climbed both at once and had a lot of rope drag. Probably best to do it in two.


Far right side of rock.


Small nuts to #4 Camalot.

In 2002 added one bolt to protect first moves and anchor on top of first pitch.

A fun route that is harder than it appears from below.

Look out for the booby trap on the unprotected traverse, pure death....

Oh yeah, the walk off to the right is faster than rapping.

Fun 1st pitch, but the 2nd pitch traverse is covered in bat shit or is a run out slab, with bad falls for the leader and second, very short pitch, Note the original start is not up the slab with bolt, was suprised the bolt was not chopped, plus it's almost worthless, starts the same as Nazi's Demise, then moves right,

The choices on the second pitch are guano or run out traverse. Most of us will choose run out. The leader risks slamming back into the right-facing corner and the second risks slamming into the left-facing corner under the roof.
Turns out the feet are decent, so stay low and out of the fecal matter. It's South Platte slab.
