Bob D'Antonio lists eight routes along the canyon road before arriving at the parking area. It is possible to park quite close to most of these, leaving little or no approach. Most of these routes get good sun, are 30 to 50 ft long and bolt protected. The group ticks in between 5.9 and 5.12. Lunge for Jesus (#8) comes recommended at 5.11b.
This is the cliff band along the right side of the road that heads to the parking. Routes start shortly after descending into the canyon

A fun variation to the 5."11" Jesus Dashboard. Start is the same but after the initial steep, crack feature work left on the ramp and up a gently overhanging, pocketed face.NOTE: A few years ago the anchors had been vandalized but have since been replaced....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
