Description

A hillside covered with tiny crags and boulders, and a a few main towering spires of granite.

Approach

The original developers hoofed it uphill from highway 50. Today we have the luxury of a rarely maintained logging road. Low clearance cars must park on Wrights Lake Road, which adds about a mile of walking each way to the approach. The dirt road is closed seasonally during snow cover, check with Eldorado National Forest's website for current status.

Ethic

Trad rules. Bolts are only tolerated on new lines where no traditional pro can be had. If in doubt, don't drill.

History

View timeline of historical ascents

These formerly phantom rocks were unleashed from their concealment by a forest fire in the 1980s.
