L to R R to L Alpha
This is an organizational entry to help with L->R sorting that would not otherwise work for this crag. These are routes that ascend above the Tourist Gully (a low angle ramp starting at the south end of North Gateway Rock) and are above the right end of the West Face.
Park at the North Main Parking Lot and walk around the south end of North Gateway Rock to get to the Tourist Gully ramp. Carefully ascend 3rd class terrain (which can get sandy) to access these routes. There are some large eyebolts along the ramp that facilitate belaying more safely.

This is a good face route that climbs thin edges through a bulge. The route is pretty sustained 5.9, with one crux at the fourth piton, involving tricky and thin footwork. This fourth piton is a bit difficult to clip for shorter climbers. It is definitely much harder route than Son of Tidrick's or Place in the Sun....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
