Description 

This area is home to one of the most beautiful, monolithic chunks of limestone in Colorado. The Mural Wall is renowned for its dense collection of difficult 5.12 test-pieces, but the surrounding walls offer an excellent selection of routes for climbers of all abilities. This wall faces SW, and receives early morning shade until around noon.

Getting There 

Follow the trail from the old parking lot. Pass a signed trail to the Far Side, continuing on the right/straight fork of the trail. After several minutes, the trail comes to a well-signed T-intersection. Take the right fork (marked “Mural Wall”). Follow several long switchbacks up the hill to the base of the Mural Wall.

This is a fun line that burls over a prominent, juggy roof. The crux is just under the roof - a short series of thin and somewhat technical moves to jugs, where the roof-climbing starts. There is another strenuous section after you get over the roof. This line lies a couple hundred yards to the right of the Mural Wall, on the far right edge of this wall. Walk all the way right until you come to the fence and then look at the cliff. The route has red angle-iron hangers, and the third bolt is a...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

There are several routes on this wall that are not listed on here, does anyone have any beta on them? One is just left of 5.12a M&M, two are between Protect The King and Demartini, Block Party has a split halfway up the route, and there are a couple routes far right down the wall.
