Lens Rock is a 1-2 pitch crag located between the Bookend and the Citadel. It consists of mostly easy to moderate trad lines and couple of stiffer mixed routes. This small crag does offer a variety of fun climbing - chimney, off-width, finger to fist cracks and some face climbing too. I wouldn't consider this crag to be a destination, but it is worth a stop off to get another line in for the day if you are in the general area.
Lens Rock is most easily accessed from other crags. Take the Black Canyon Trail to the Bookend or to the Pear. From the Bookend: head west below the Bookend across the gully and you'll run into Lens Rock. From the Pear: head up and east the descent gully on the east (right) side of the Pear.

Belay from bolts on top, a few feet left of the crack. Descend to the north then east dropping down easy slabs. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
