Description 

Pitch 1: The 5.7 crux move is getting off the ground -- up a six foot vertical slab with good holds for hands. After this steep start and clipping the first bolt above, the rest of the 1st pitch is mostly 5.5ish -- fairly low angle, and mostly big holds to the anchors. It's a little run out, but the climbing is easy. There are about 6 bolts to the anchors.

Pitch 2: This is an easy, short pitch, straight up, with mostly slabbly climbing on fairly low angle rock for another 60 feet. There are about 5 bolts to the anchors. It starts out at about 5.6 and gets easier the higher you climb.

Descent: rappel the route in two rappels from the top.

You could easily combine the two pitches into a single long pitch of about 150 feet.


Location 

I highly recommend Stewart Green's "Rock Climbing Colorado, 2nd edition" guidebook for a great description of the routes in the Tanner Dome area and throughout Colorado!

On Tanner Dome, this route is the farthest right of the moderates (#6 in the photo). It's about 30 feet right and up the hill from "Amp Right."


Protection 

If done in two pitches, you just need 6 quickdraws.

To me, it felt like the crux was between bolts 2 and 3 of the second pitch. If you're feeling a bit run out before the anchors on the first pitch, you can protect the small crack to the left with a #0.5 Camalot. A good climb!
