Description [Suggest Changes]

The East Ridge of Saint Vrain Mountain is more of a face than a ridge. This broad descent has many options and can be a long descent to the choke point in Rock Creek (up to 2,000 if conditions are right). When you reach the narrow point of the creek with steepening walls on either side (around 10,400) head east into the forest to regain road 116. Feel the burn down the road to the car!
