1. campground is now defunct.
2. new Della-Terra lodge owners are very cool about climber access.
3. do not park on the Della-Terra paved areas.
4. Parking available in NPS lot on south side of highway
5. parking also available in Hwy roadside dirt lot.
6. hike up ravine to east side of Della-Terra lodge.
7. all climbers that choose to top-out, I would recommend descending to the west. Some guidebooks say east; but you'll hate that choice.
8. restrooms & water (and snacks) available at NP Village North next to RMNP visitors center across the highway.

|Great slab, with excellent rock. One of my favorite approaches (LOL). I'd say this is better than Grey Rock, or Cedar Park slab by far.|

|Does anyone know if Della-Terra minds if you walk up their driveway? This would be the best approach if it's allowed, since the well marked trail starts on the hill right behind/above the lodge. If you want to avoid their property, hike up the gully to the East, but make sure to traverse left to meet the good trail. We tried to follow the gully all the way up and wound up bush-whacking. At least we found the trail on the way down....|

There is an actual climber's trail at the top of the driveway that starts out looking like a runoff trail, but it is the start of the climber's trail. You can bushwhack too up the ravine, too, but it's my understanding the owners don't have an issue. We did however try to keep "out of sight/out of mind" as much as possible while on the property.
Please post up if you know otherwise.

This place is awesome. Super cool, great quality, multi-pitch climbing! Mostly slabby, with interesting corners, cracks, flakes, and dihedrals. Reminded me a bit of Whitehorse Ledge in New Hampshire but with more features to use as pro!
The access is fine. The inn does not mind. An employee in a golf cart gave us a lift up the hill from the street to the gully.
