Description 

A 50-foot tower about 100 feet off of the road on the North side of Boulder Canyon. The rock presently has only one route, but it is a good route. As well, the proximity of this to the Cenotaph Crag makes it a worth-while stop. In fact, it might be the best route of those on the crag or spire.

The sole route, 'Harebell', faces W/SW and gets morning shade, pehaps until noon depending on the season. The higher altitude, easy access, and AM shade make this and Cenotaph a good morning destination on a day otherwise too hot to climb.


Getting There 

Drive up canyon past Castle Rock about 1/2 mile. There will be a fairly large pullout on the right just after a right-hand curve. Park there and look back East to this obvious Tower.

Approach from the parking spot by heading up the hill on a good but pine-needle-covered trail to the base of a small cliff and turn right, going parallel to the road and then slightly left up to the cliff. Look for a blunt arete facing W/SW on the tallest aspect of the rock. There is one bolt down low, and one near the top. This is Harebell.


Routes 

A. Harebell, 10- PG-13, 1p, 55', gear & bolt.

Harebell 5.10- 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a PG13  CO : Boulder Canyon : Cenotaph Spire
A pretty good route, and a thinking-person's route at that. Although the crux is up top, there is an awkward start and then crimps that require good focus along the entire way to that crux. The best climbing is the upper 1/3rd....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
