This route is not marked in Rossiter's Bihedral section of the Boulder Canyon book and is not apparently described on this site yet. This seemed to be the buttress 'below' route #1 in Rossiter's topo. From the normal approach to the Bihedral, just before the scrambling starts off of the trail, take a sharp left and go west to a short buttress with several bolted routes on it. This is the second bolted route from the right, starting about 15' left of Leave No Trace. See ?beta photo?...[more] Browse More Classics in CO

Was here today and saw someone putting in a new bolt on what looks like Free At Last. Hopefully this was a replacement and not someone altering the existing line?
