High Profile Wall is a funky crag with several, seldom climbed, Clear Creek test pieces. This crag appears to sit almost on top of the road and its clean, main wall faces West and North. Hungry Wolf and Stuffed Wolf are a pair of well bolted 5.13s that are less than half a rope length and share an anchor. Puppy Chow is ostensibly a top rope problem, although getting the TR set up would seem more challenging than it was worth. Scramble up to a rough ledge via an exposed 50 foot 5.1 face. This scramble can be protected with a few wires if that seems prudent. HPW is a good spot to work out some hard moves with minimal commitment and an endless stream of onlookers to cheer you on.
8.2 miles West of the intersection of US 6, CO 58, and CO 93 is a pullout on the South side of the road. This can be used for both the High Profile Wall and A Little Piece of South Dakota. It is necessary to wade across the stream for both crags. The best spot for wading varies with the season but is usually up-stream of HPW.

Stout."Start left of the direct variation, Stuffed Wolf and climb moderate ledges. Make either a slow, deliberate transfer or a wild huck out to the positive rail out right, and continue up the feature until you once again need to transfer right into the crux of the route.
