This is sunny most of the day, especially after 11am. The rock is generally good, but since it is a new area, there are a few loose flakes here and there.
This nice, little, vertical face is located just past Nomad Cave up a gully on the right. If walking from the tyrolean, go past Nomad Cave, take a right, and walk a few hundred feet up the gully. The cliff is on the right side of the gully.
Climb up the ramp on the left to clip the first bolt. From here, walk up the ramp until you find a start that is to your liking! If you are under 5.8, it might be a little easier to start on the crimps about 4 feet to the left of the first bolt and traverse at an angle on crimps to the second bolt. Both ways are about equal, depending on your height. The first 30 feet of this route climb very nicely on crimps and sidepulls. You are rewarded with a 5.6 warm down for the last 15 feet to get to the...[more]Browse More Classics in CO

I do think that the routes, at times, may be a little stiff for the grades depending on your height and crimp ability.
Congratulations; nice addition to CCC. I'm surprised that it kicked up so many nice lines. We had scoped with it binoculars several years ago, were not really jazzed, and never humped up. Super job!! Have you thought about the crag way up the hillside - steep but solid rock.
