This is a reorganizational entry for the crags called Ivy League which include Ivy Right, Ivy Center, and Ivy Left. These are some of the lower crags on Palisade Mountain.

Allen, if you want me to reassign this to you, I certainly can. You know far more information that I do.

Getting There 

Go 5.1 miles past the Beige Siphon Tube. Hike up the hill on the north side of the road curving on a C shaped trail skirting poison ivy to this set of three crags.

Climbing Season

Featured Route For Ivy League
Rock Climbing Photo: Right hand line.

Thinline 5.11+ 7a 24 VIII 24 E4 6a  CO : Estes Park Valley : ... : Ivy Right
Take the bolt line up the right side of Ivy Right. A tricky 5.9-10a start past one bolt gets you atop the arching crack stance and the fun begins from here. Stay out of the crack on the right! A bit contrived because of that, but I think this is a 3 star route if the crack were not there. There are very thin slabbing moves past 3 bolts. This route has multiple hard 5.10 and 5.11 moves in a row....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

No established routes on Ivy left yet. it is a short wall with some cracks and bouldery faces. Maybe only 45 feet tall.
