Cookie Jar is a 25 foot block of sandstone right next to the road. There are some highballs on it and the south face offers a crack described in the 70s as the most climbed at crack in the boulder area. Nowadays one rarely sees chalk on this rock. One can scramble up the NW corner to the top to find a skinny eye bolt. The bolt can be used in conjunction with some gear to TR the crack. Its a good one to learn some crack technique while transitioning to face climbing at the top.

Getting There 

From the bridge at the bottom of Flagstaff Mtn. drive past Panoroma Pt. (this is 0.5 miles). Go up the hill another 0.2 miles making a sweeping left-hander and pull immediately into the small parking area on the left which is for the Halfway House. Cookie Jar is 100 yards farther up the road on the west side.

The line, of course, is the obvious crack on the south face. This is a beautiful, short climb. Being only 5.7 one is tempted to boulder it. However, I measured it-it is 28' high and it pushes you out and vertical at the top. If you lead it the gear is there but several pieces are needed so you do not deck. I give it two stars because it is so easy to access and the moves are nice. Its just too short. I think its an s because the potential to deck is high....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Not as popular now as during the 1960s, due to road "improvements."
