Hall of Justice Rock Climbing
Lowering off of Zero to Hero.
This is a large, sunny cave of hyper-industrial dry-tooling. It can be below zero in town and if it's sunny, you can climb in a t-shirt in this cave. VERY COMFORTABLE. Don't forget your CROCs or similar so you don't have to put your boots on between burns. This cave is big and stays completely dry at its base, which allows for a complete yard sale style distribution of your gear. Jason has put a TON of work into getting this cave climbable, and if you go up there, it'd be very nice to bring a draw or two or better yet a chain or two to donate, as the sun really beats on slings.
Head up the road from the Skylight area about 1/4 mile. If you park at the Senator's Gulch parking, it takes about 35-45 minutes. In early season, prior to the miners shutting the gate, you can drive basically right to the cave - then about 10 minutes will find you in the cave.

Pitch 1 we chose to climb Holy Girlpile Batman! and then traverse into the arch feature and belay at the mid-way anchors of Pull the Trigger Tigga. Because it was warm, the rock was falling apart terribly from the water that runs through the rock in this part of the cave. I guess we chose this start because there was some ice on it, but halfway up, I was looking over at Pull the Trigga Tigga thinking it looked more appealing. I placed one cam on the tr...[more] Browse More Classics in CO

This cave and its surrounding walls offer limitless possibilities for the motivated M (or is it D) climber. The rock gets significantly better the higher you go. Caves are the geological toilets of rock walls, which is why they are caves.

If there is no ice, logic would dictate that we embrace the D grade.

Should we move this section under the Camp Bird Road section?

Ozman, we could move the routes to the Camp Bird Road subarea; however, we can't move the area under Camp Bird Road, because you can't have subareas and routes at the same level in the hierarchy on this website.
If we think it is best to move these routes, then we lose the Hall of Just page.
I hope this makes sense.
