New Colorado Moderate Alpine Route

The new route climbs the Aiguille de Fleur in Rocky Mountain National Park.

The four-pitch 5.9 called Victory Garden climbs an impressive wall, which was first climbed in 1978 via the West Face route.

The new route up the west face was climbed by Michael Goodhue and Tim Davis on the fourth of July.

Victory Garden climbs a left-curving dihedral and its crux is on the third pitch. The route looks like a great way to escape the heat as rock climbers everywhere are heading to the alpine to find some cool rock.
