Description 

This is a small crag about 80 foot tall lying about 400 feet SE of Gollum's Arch Rock. It has a handful of routes, at least two of which are pleasant. While certainly not a destination crag, it can be combined with routes on Twin Owls, Gollum's Arch Rock, and/or Rocks One through Six for a pleasant outing of short routing. The NW & SW faces hold the routes.

Descend the crag by scrambling down to the SE & circling back uphill to your packs.


Getting There 

From the new parking lot, you can take either trail to approach this crag as it makes basically a circle with the parking area being ~6 o'clock & this crag being ~12 o'clock. Either approach is ~1 mile. If you go west from the parking lot, you will need to head northeast after ~0.6 miles. Then, follow the trail that wanders up north between Twin Owls & Gollum's Arch. Hen & Chickens where the trail goes off to Gollum's Arch Rock. Where the trail starts uphill on log-reinforced steps, continue contouring about 200 yards to the triangular appearing rock. Do not mistake it for a small crag with water grooves on its W face (lying immediately SE of Gollum's Arch Rock) with a mixed line with 3 bolts on its S face. If you approach from the right (north) trail, head west when you T into the Gem Lake trail junction. From the new parking lot, take the west trail towards the old Twin Owls parking lot ~0.6 miles. Expect about 20-25 minutes.

You can (less ideal) ascend worn, switchbacked social trails from below the crag perhaps 100 yards E of Upper Twin Owls/Gollum's Arch Rock.

Topo of unknown double lieback.

Unknown (Double Lieback) 5.9+ 5c 17 VI E1 5a  CO : Lumpy Ridge : Triangle Rock
This is a route on the North face (containing at least 5 routes) of Triangle Rock. It may be considered a variation to Bucket Brigade; however, the climbing is distinct except for a rest before the traverse to the 'bucket' of Bucket Brigade. It forms a skinny X with Bucket Brigade on a topo. Although it can be led, a TR might prove more palatable, due to the start & tree at midheight. It is not a destination climb but worth a run if you are al...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
