This is the closest area to the trailhead with a number of short easy to moderate climbs with a few more difficult lines. It is an area that is more reasonable to use for top roping although the anchors aren't always super easy to access. Expect some exposed 3rd and 4th class scrambling.

Getting There 

The first area reached in No Name when hiking up the road. The gentle granite slab that gives the area its name meets the road and other climbing is obvious up and left.

Wide Crack 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  CO : Glenwood Springs : ... : Beginner Slab area
Go up the wide crack on the right hand side of the beginner's slab. I went up the right side of the large crack, but you could just as easily take the left side. There are bolts hat can be clipped at the top of this route, but they are around the corner to left of the route. There is also a small pinyon growing in the rock that you can lower off of, but the bolts would be better, they are just to the left of the pinyon. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
