Description 

A varied climbing experience on Dakota Sandstone. This crag doesn't see a lot of traffic and the routes can be a little dirty. There are sport routes, mixed routes, and some cracks. Most are one pitch in the 40-60ft range, somewhere around 30 climbs in total.

Getting There 

From the parking area, hike through the bouldering area to a large Ponderosa. From there, follow a trail that leads up the hill to the base of the right side of the cliff near Fringe Dweller.

This fine crack leads to the top of the cliff, but only the first two pitches are worth doing. The third is choss.Look for a two bolt anchor (there are not many) with an angling crack to the right. This is the start. Pitch 1: 40 feet, 5.10b/c. Start on 5.8 terrain to a nice, thin, hand crack finish. The 5.10b/c is only a few moves near the top and protects very well. 1 bolt, 1 pin anchor.Pitch 2: 60 feet, 5.8. Continue up the featured crack with fun pockets. Near the top it is extremely ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
