Description 

This 20-25 foot high formation has three cracks, a couple bits on the left, & that's about it. The possibility for some short face routes exists. It is south-facing & warm.

The rock is of moderate to good quality, though there is a lot of dirt, pebbles, and general organic matter on the top-out / anchoring area. Watch out for cacti.

There is lots of road noise.

There are no bolts, so prepare to trad or TR with built anchors.


Getting There 

Drive 2/10 of a mile past Boulder Falls (~7.8 miles into the canyon). There is a large pullout on the right.

Old mining debris (wooden items & rusted iron rails) are scattered about. The face is also characterized by some red painted shapes and a "G" on the right side (near the walk-up)

Belay from the car.

Deb trying to figure out the crux footwork.

Mind Shaft Crack Left 5.10c 6b 20 VII E2 5b  CO : Boulder Canyon : Mind Shaft Cliff
The route follows a double crack system (mostly thin crack) on a steep face. It is shown in the D'Antonio guide, where it is given the very incorrect rating of 5.8. The climbing consists of a mix of crack and face moves....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
