Description 

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.

Getting There 

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.

Stuffed Wolf 5.13b 8a 29 IX+ 30 E7 6c  CO : Golden : ... : High Profile Wall
This is the right route on the wall. It joins the left route near the top. Powerful moves right off the deck deposit you to the right a bit. A brilliant, pinchy crux leads you right into the crux of Hungry Wolf (the left route 12d/13a). Keep it together to the anchors. It's pumpy all the way....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Anyone know what the new line on this formation is? Driving through the canyon yesterday I saw a line with project draws to the left of the Wolf routes... looks pretty rad!
