These three crags sit on the same hillside facing SW. The routes are mostly short (less than 80 feet) trad and mixed routes requiring some natural protection, often toprope-able. The grades range from 5.7-5.11. Although the 15+ possible routes here are not the best in this area, the Green Slab (5.9+) on Buick Rocks 1st Buttress and an unnamed face route (5.10) on Buick Rocks 2nd Buttress are worthwhile climbs. The approach is a short but loose rocky trail up from the pullout.
From the Shelly Cottage turnoff follow County Road 80 about .6 miles, 0.1 miles past the Entryway slabs. Pullout on the left or right and hike up to the right to the crags.

This short sport route is on the second buttress of Buick Rocks, ie above and left of Hitler's Sex Life formation (which is lower on the hillside to the right) and the right of the two Buick Rocks. This line is high on the right side (SW) of the second buttress, between two trad lines Pooh Belly (5.7 on the left) and Kiss Face (5.10b? on the right). A few tricky moves off the ground are protected well by the first bolt, but the climb remains fairly sustained through the third bolt....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
