Description 

This is a subarea entry to help facilitate the L->R ordering of routes, since this massif belies ordinary organization.

The routes here are on the East Face of Keyhole Rock, which is listed as "Sleeping Giant" on the park map.

The routes here go from Dancin' Fool, 9, to Overhang, 10 R.


Getting There 

There are closer parking spots to the Northwest and South of the formation on Juniper Way Loop that circles around to the West of the climbing formations. Parking at either and a short hike on trail and then off trail briefly around either the north or south ends will lead you to this lowest tier. The base of the tier is in a gully/wash area.

However, the park is small, so you could easily walk from the North main parking area between North and South Gateway Rocks and head south past Montezuma's Tower and then Keyhole Rock.

The route follows the obvious line. It has an easy start, it is a little sandy and slick in places along the large crack/elongated flake, but there are lots of good holds and foot placements. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
