BETA PHOTO: Team Geritol (5.6), Rock Garden, San Luis Valley, ...


This is a super-fun, easy, fairly long, frictiony face, with a great position in the canyon. A hard start can be bypassed on the right. This is Route #19 in D'Antonio's guides (1999:36 and 1994:20). The name of the route is sadly misspelled in the 1999 guidebook.


From the roadside parking, this route is on a buttress on the right about 100 yards up the canyon. It ascends the nose of the buttress, just right of The Bottom Line, and one could probably go past the Geritol chains to set a toprope on The Bottom Line as well.


Six bolts to a 2-bolt anchor with chains.
