This is another small crag located at the Eastern end of Lumpy Ridge. It lies relatively close to the trail to Gem Lake. It has at least four routes, Raw Hide, 5.11a; Small Caliber, 5.10c; Hanging Tree, 5.10d; and Rough & Ready, 5.9+. Raw Hide, on the narrow East Face draws your eye as you hike past it. The other routes are located on the North face and are easily visible from the Gem Lake Trail.
Hike from the new trailhead north towards Gem Lake. Go right at the T intersection. When you see Crescent Wall about 1 1/4 miles in, you may notice a small outcropping of fins located just left (North). This is Fin City. Out West Crag is located about 100 yards further North.

Aim for the tree growing out of the cliff at the base of a left-leaning splitter. Traverse in from the left in a right-angling, intermittent, crack system. I vaguely remember the traversing start to be slightly dirty and a wee bit spicy, but the jamming in the upper crack is well worth the effort....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
