Approach takes 10-15 minutes.
Mountain Project's determination of some of the classic, most popular, highest rated routes for The Overlook:
Start just right of Lobo. Place an RP, make a hard move and then clip a bolt. Technical moves get you to finger crack. Climb the crack to a large flake on the right. Move right into another corner and climb that to the top. You can also traverse at the top to the anchors for Philadelphia Flyer and lower from there. Great route with bouldering type moves at the start. ...[more]Browse More Classics in CO
