Description 

The New Economy Cliff is located on the south-side of Clear Creek Canyon, about one mile upstream from Tunnel #3. The most obvious feature on the cliff is a large, white right-facing corner on the right (west end) side of the cliff. There is a obvious pullout on the south side of the road. The cliff can be approached by wading the creek or by a Tyrolean traverse located about 500 feet upstream from the parking area. All routes are bolt-protected and end at bolt anchors. There are currently 15 routes ranging in grades from 5.10 to 5.12c. The cliff facing north and makes for a great early morning crag during the hot summer months.


Getting There 

Travel west through Clear Creek Canyon a mile past Tunnel #3. Park at a pullout on the south-side of the road. Park here. Wade the creek or use the tyrolean traverse (NO LONGER) located 500 feet upstream from the parking area.

Just left of High Tech Sector, there is a flat spot at the base of the cliff. Above this, there are four short routes. Consumer Confidence is the 3rd from the right of these. The business is getting from bolt 2 to bolt four, laying away past a bulge, but I thought the hardest single move was clipping the third bolt....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

We spent a superb day at the New Economy Cliff, however, it would be useful to have a photo of the right and left sides of this cliff with route annotations as well. Once again, congratulations to Bob D'Antonio and his partners for creating a fine climbing spot that most of have been ignoring for all these years.

The Tyrolean is missing and the creek to high to wade, save it for Fall.

We climbed/crossed Clear Creek on Sat Aug 4th, the river was still higher then expected.

Red arrows show our river crossing path, still 36" deep and swift.

Garrett and Lisa Gillest crossing back after climbing New Economy, they found the old tyrolean traverse rope, used as anchor to cross back.
