Facing North-Northwest, the Middle Class wall is a good place to avoid the harsh sun during the summer months. There are some stout climbs at Middle Class, and some quality rock, but generally, the Upper Echelon is a higher quality crag.
Park on the eastbound side of 14 just before the Mishawaka Tunnel, and head up the faint trail toward the cliffs. The Middle Class wall is, you guessed it, the middle of the climbable features here, and can be identified by it's lower, slabby, slightly broken section topped by a steep headwall with (probably) some fixed draws on the Twinkletoes. Break left off the trail above the talus over some flakes (3rd class) to reach a nice ledge at the base of the wall.

Undercling/layback the small roof at the start and continue up the slab to chains on the left side of the middle ledge. Short and not super sustained at the grade but great rock and quality climbing. A bit runout getting to the chains but the climbing gets a lot easier as you get further away from the last bolt (there is a slabby crux right above the last bolt)....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
