This small area hosts a fine collection of sea-worthy routes on more excellent Shelf limestone. Located just to the NW of the Mural Wall., this area includes two large, left-facing dihedrals that stay shady until nearly 4 pm, making this a great summer destination. The character of this crag is a bit more old-school than Menses Prow, featuring older-style bolts and runouts.
Follow the trail from the old parking lot. Pass a signed trail to the Far Side, continuing on the right/straight fork of the trail. After several minutes, the trail comes to a well-signed T-intersection. Take the right fork (marked “Mural Wall”). Follow several long switchbacks up the hill to the base of the Mural Wall. Head left along the cliff base, past the left end of the Mural Wall. Continue another 30 yds on a so-so trail to the Fish Wall.

This route shares the first few bolts with Happy Nightmare Baby. Start just left of the main corner in the Fish Wall, near a pine tree and a block which leans against the wall. At the first ledge, move up and left (Happy Nightmare Baby goes up and right). Climb up the thin face to a small, right-facing corner, then move up and left to the anchors at the top of the cliff....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
