Description 

This is a reorganizational entry (thanks to Micah) to help facilitate the L->R sorting, because it "really doesn't make sense when you are going pretty much around an entire rock." This subarea will include routes from the East Side.


Getting There 

Park on the east side of the formation or the main parking area. From the main parking area, walk past North Gateway Rock to South Gateway just across the paved trail. Hike up established trails to get to your route.

Pic taken from a bad angle but shows all of the pins.

Pure Energy 5.11b/c 6c+ 23 VIII- E4 6a  CO : Colorado Springs : ... : East Side
It's the second climb over from the Mighty Thor. This has good climbing on small edges and a few pockets to a steep headwall. All in all, it's a great climb if you like slab. It really works your feet....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
