  • Description 

    This is a reorganizational entry (thanks to Micah) to help facilitate the L->R sorting, because it "really doesn't make sense when you are going pretty much around an entire rock." This subarea will include routes from the South Face.

    Getting There 

    Park to the southeast of Kindergarten Rock. Hike up established trails.

Scramble up this ramp and traverse left onto th...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
