Escondido Circle is the western boundary of the Riggs' Hill area. It offers a few good problems on surprisingly solid stone.

This area is not well known to me and I apologize for misrepresenting anything. If there is more information you would like inserted into this area, or corrected information, let me know and I'll be happy to change it. I'll also get more pictures of the area as I return to Riggs in the following weeks and months ahead.

Getting There 

Drive past the main parking area of Rigg's Hill approximately 1/4 mile and turn right on Escondido Circle. The boulders are immediately on the right side, with a small parking area on the left.

Sit or hang low- Start left and traverse with smearing feet. There is a possible heel hook early, but the feet go away at the crux. You need a pull up, and one arm to shoot up and right to an awesome jug, swing around, have fun, don't let go or you have a 40 foot hill to enjoy. Top out in the crumbling chunks of sandstone, one spot seems to hold ;)...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
