Description 

Mystery Rock is the name given to this small formation by Bernard Gillett in his Saint Vrain Canyons Guide. He discovered several bolted climbs here, but he was unable to obtain any information about them or their first ascentionists. If anyone steps forward to claim these first routes, the name of the rock and the routes may change.

Getting There 

Mystery Rock is located 7.0 miles up South Saint Vrain Canyon, about 0.1 mile up the road from Trojan Bunny Buttress. There is a large pullout on the right side of the road as you head uphill. The rock is located directly across the stream from the lowest point of the pullout.

Mystery Rock is hard to see from the road, but it is only about a five minute approach with almost no uphill slogging.

Finger Crack 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  CO : Lyons : ... : Mystery Rock
This is a climb with 20 feet of very good climbing in a crack followed by reasonable climbing for 65 additional feet. The climb may feel somewhat misnamed. Although it is characterized by a crack at the bottom, it is only 1/3 of the climb and wider than fingers for half of that, ranging from 0.75" to 2". After the crack, head up and slightly left passing a short-needled fir to the left side of it, then up and left more to pass a long-needled pine to the right side before cutting more sharply ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
