BETA PHOTO: The 8 short routes of Basic Training Wall.


Basic Training Wall is located on the hillside 100 yards right of Combat Rock. It is a short wall (55 feet) that has most of the components required to climb on combat (smears, edges, seams, cracks, and a roof). All of the routes are bolted. It was difficult to find good anchor placements due to some of the loose nature of the rock at the top. The leftmost anchor is 6 feet back from the edge and is only usable as a TR with a long sling. Want an introduction to the type of climbing on Combat?, this will give you an idea.

Getting There 

Take US Highway 34 from Loveland to Drake. Take County Road 43 (Glenhaven Road) to the right at Drake. After about a quarter of a mile, turn right on the forest access road that goes up to Cedar Park. Follow the road up thru the switchbacks. At the end of the last switchback lies the pullout for Combat Rock. Park here. Start down the Combat Rock trail and head up the other side as for approaching Combat. Go through a small rock band uphill towards the second, larger rock band. Just prior to this band, a faint trail heads uphill to the northwest. The wall is on the left about 100 yards uphill. There is a fallen ponderosa leaning on the left side of the wall, a fallen soldier from the Bobcat Fire back in 2002.

The crux is at the start and the 4th bolt. This is a very fun climb up a seam/shallow dihedral. Start with good edges and pockets past the 1st bolt. Gain the shallow dihedral and continue up. It is a bit runout to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
