Overview / Approach

Located on the namesake "Middle Toe" of the Dinosaur's Foot on the approach side of the formation. This is one of the first climbs you see as you approach the rock. This route shared anchors with Index Toe when I last climbed it, but now has it's own.

Route Description

Enjoyable climb up good rock - very similar climbing to Index Toe, just with a couple harder moves. The crux of the route is about 1/3 to 1/2 of the way up where the featured stone gives way to a smooth, steep face. There are a couple of ballancy moves with some reaches that lead through this section. Once past the obvious headwall (it’s fairly short), the face eases back and the climbing is much easier to the anchors.

The Descent

Rappel from the anchors. We had two ropes, and had no problems. I can't remember if one is long enough...

Essential Gear

Five or six quickdraws and something for the anchor.
