Creekside Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Route topo for Creekside Wall.
Also known as the Pinnacle, lower west face, this 40' high, west facing cliff rises directly above the creek. It is just south of the footbridge opposite the parking area for the Pinnacle. In fact, you will walk past these climbs on your way to the Pinnacle. This is a good place to toprope. Many climbers will sling trees on top of the cliff for anchors.
Follow the directions for North Cheyenne Canyon and park at the Pinacle parking area. It is 0.85 miles from the canyon entrance to a pullout on the right hand side of the road. This is just west of the Pinacle.

The lower roof route takes a line through the largest roof that you can find at Creekside Wall. Just look up as you are walking uphill towards the main Creekside Wall and you cant miss it. Your eyes will follow a left-facing dihedral, which breaks back to the right in order to turn the roof. The big flake beneath the roof is pretty bomber to hang off of. However, even better gear can be had by taking the time to work it into a pocket in the back of the roof (number 2 or 3 Camalot). Make a big ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO

Very nice area to climb the rock is ok and offers a lot of options for different gear placements, nice approach. Been teaching some friends the finer points of clean aid and I can tell ya that you will find a place for everything from ball nuts to hooks or cam hooks to threading old pins w/hero loops or hand placing sawed offs in old scars, it's all there.
One note if ya see an old f&^ *er up there TR-aiding something it's prolly me. If I'm on anything you wish to climb, let me know and I will gladly move. You might have ta yell at me if I'm alone, cus I'm probably groovin' the iPod to some "Lamb of God "or other heavy/death metal.
I use this area as a gym to keep in shape and never have a problem with moving for anyone....

Climbed at this area yesterday. Not really worth the effort or time. The routes are short and the anchor options on top are poor/sketchy. Not really worth the time. Keep going up the hill and get on the routes further up the Pinnacle. They are much more worthwhile, and you'll spend more time climbing and less time dicking around with setting up sketchy anchors for mediocre routes.
