Description 

This serenely situated formation is host to three short and sweet routes on its southwest face. All you'll need is a half dozen draws and some small TCUs and nuts to protect this trio of "restday favorites". The rock bites back a bit, but it's a worthy trade off for the stellar moves and scenic backdrop (bring the camera for this one!). The routes receive afternoon sunlight and can be rappelled to the west on a set of anchors. Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll!

In addition, there are south-facing and some non-descript East Face slab routes here.


Getting There 

Der Freischutz is located on Dinosaur Mtn. Park at NCAR Mesa and take the Mallory Cave Trail up past the Dinosuar Egg and Der Zerkle to the base of the east face slab of The Hand. Take a faint trail up a rocky and wooded gully into the corridor between The Hand (north side) and Der Freischutz (south side). When the south side opens up into a stellar view of Bear Canyon the climbs can be found above an idyllic flat boulder at the base of the southwest face. Enjoy!
