A small but very worthy crag outside Estes Park. It receives full sun and offers a small selection of hard routes. A few cracks (5.10 and 5.11) and a handful of sport pitches. All the routes are worth doing, but don't miss Cottontail Right, the right of the two cracks (5.11c) and Destroyer (5.12a) the bolted pitch just to the right.
Take US Highway 36 west out of Estes Park, veer left on Spur 66 and follow it to its end. One can see the crag up and left from the cul de sac. Park and hike up and follow the power lines for about 10 minutes. The crag should be just up on your left. It can be identified by two nice cracks on its west side, and four (?) sport lines on its southern side.

Destroyer 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a CO : Estes Park Valley : Cottontail Crag
This is an excellent route, with a great position, fun moves and good rock. It begins just right of Cottontail Right (the rightmost of the two cracks). Begin by climbing straight up, sharing the first two bolts of Arms Race (5.11a/b). From a stance, move left onto and weave a line back and forth up the blunt arete. The crux comes at the top, with some sweet crystal pullin', after a handy rest. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
