2016 Closure on Shirt Tail Peak Effective March 11,2016 MORE INFO >>>


This convenient, south-facing area offers excellent and difficult face, arete, overhang, mantle, and traverse problems on solid, Eldorado, hardened sandstone. Perched up above the cement platform, it has a very scenic and somewhat secluded feel.

Getting There 

Hike across the bridge to the Whale's Tail base and cave. Hike a few more feet up to the cement platform, look up the talus due north approximately 30 feet, and you will see the blocks.

Climbing Season

For the Eldorado Canyon Bouldering area.
