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 is the 5.8 dihedral just to the right (north) of the Green Arete. The start is a little chossy, but once through the initial moves, this crack offers good laybacks, hand jams, and a fine finger finish. Once at the top of the crack, traverse on a loose poop covered ledge to the anchors for Green Arete. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
