The last off shoot that is supposed to be "moderate" actually was the nastiest challenge of the day. The entry rocks were majorly washed out and because of the steepness I got denied early on. We were running solo so I called "no glory" rather than working any harder. I could have easily found a line but I choose to save it for another day when other rigs were with me. The trail is worth the trip but from here it takes about the same time to get there as it would to go to Holy Cross. The entire trail, along with off shoot and lunch took us 4 hours hitting every tough line we could find. I would plan a long day if I was in a moderately built rig.

Parking area......trail is directly behind us in the gulch
