Escaping the summer heat at the Beer Barrel.
Down the hill and to the right from the main monkey traverse parking lot, this is a large boulder with a slabby east face and overhanging west face. There is a smaller boulder balanced on top.
Go up baseline road up to where it curves up flagstaff mountain, a mile or so up the road from the base of the mountain is a parking area on the left, the first "official" parking area one comes to on the left of the road.

On the northwest corner of Beer Barrel rock. Grab the big jug rail, step your feet high, and huck for the broken/slopey jug below the lip. A good edge for your left hand helps pull you over the top. Doing it without a rope seems a little on the burly side.This seemed like a cool addition to the site, especially after seeing Paul Glover do it ropeless in Front Range Freaks. Anyone know if this has been flashed and by whom? Also, who did the FA?...[more] Browse More Classics in CO

You actually park at the Crown Rock Parking Area (same lot as the Monkey Traverse), which is on the left, 1.6 mi up the road from Gregory Canyon Rd at the base of the mountain. (This is not the first official parking area on the left. There is an earlier official lot on the left at 0.7 miles up.) Then walk from the Monkey Traverse parking lot down the hill and to the right. It's just on the other side of the trail and a little north of Monkey Traverse. 27crags.com/crags/flagstaff-mo...
