3 pitches on Telluride conglomerate. Have your belayer anchored just in case, the base is on a dirt pitch. Possibility of kicking off loose stones as well. Super fun, fantastic view of telluride from the east, and you can see down the San Miguel river valley as well. For those not familiar with Telluride conglomerate, it's basically a red stone with small stones imbedded in it. Makes for ver creative and entertaining holds.

Descent Options:

Bolted anchors.

5 out of 5 stars Quick, Fun 3 pitch

Walk up to below the base, fixed rope up 10' off a tree to the base. Think about anchoring belayer off the wall to the right. Head up, fun, fun, fun! Once at the top, enjoy a snak or two along with the view, rap down 3 bolted anchors to the bottom.
