The best beginner route in Colorado!!! Start from the big ledge above the talus and climb the slabby crack with alot of face holds around it. An optional belay can be had at the big ledge halfway up the route if you feel like making this a 2 pitch route. This climb is 5.2 but the little bar doesn't register that low so I am putting it here. The rap utilizes two slings and one steel cable wrapped around a nice point about 25 feet from the summit. Rap rings are attached through all three wraps and provide a very nice rap anchor. One of the rings is not a twist lock type - it is has some pointy edges. If you feel uncomfortable with that then bring your own rap rings and also TIGHTEN them down once applied with a wrench.
