Description 

This is one of the best areas on Independence Pass for powerful, steep, sport climbing on great granite. Climbs range from 5.7 to 5.12+ with at least 1 project climb that may be harder. Most of the climbs fall in the 5.11 to 5.12 range.


Getting There 

Park at the Grotto Walls parking area and walk uphill along the road for about 300 yards. Look for a cairn marking a climber's trail on the left of the road. Following this trail, the first climb you will arrive at is Thug Route on the Outrageous Overhangs crag.

Featured Route For Outrageous Overhangs Area
The approximate line "Fox Trot" shown in red.  You can see the first bolt in the picture.

Fox Trot 5.8 5b 16 VI- HVS 4c  CO : Independence Pass : ... : Olympic Wall
As far as 5.8 sport routes go, this one is close to as good as it gets. This route is located on the first section of the Olympic Wall and just to the left of 50 Yard Dash. It is also the 2nd route to the right on the Olympic Wall. Sweet climbing past 8 bolts, I think the crux came surmounting the bulge halfway up. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
