This entry includes west-facing cliffs much like the bulk of the North Table Mountain routes. These cliffs are to the west of the actual quarry and to the north of the more popular parts of North Table.
Turn east off of CO-93 onto Pine Ridge Road, then turn left at Wyoming Circle. There is a parking lot here for the north trailhead. Follow the trail up to the base of the cliffs.
