BETA PHOTO: Topo photo of the full lines on the Shield. Grade...
Hole in the Wall Canyon is a good hour's venture from Steamboat, but well worth it. This area has some sport and mixed routes, with many established and potential trad routes. Many climbs in this area are more than one pitch. There are also many good places to camp along the way.
Once on Seedhouse Road (see Seedhouse Crag driving directions for how to get to Seedhouse Rd.) drive 9 miles to NF-431, now known as trail 1189. Walk around the gate and follow the trail for 20-30 minutes until you see the huge climbing oasis on the left. After crossing a small log bridge stay left and jump onto a trail the that leads into the heart of the canyon.
