This is a great location above the Piedra River. There are at least 5-7 routes but only a few are documented here.

Some climbs are accessible only by rapping in to anchors at the base of the good band of rock. Others start at the base of the cliff.

Getting There 

Park at the big turn in Piedra Rd as it crests the hill and you can first see the canyon (~15 miles from town). This is known as "Sally's Corner". Walk to the edge and look for rap anchors.

This is a spectacular, steep climb with awesome exposure. It is not for the faint-hearted; if you are uncomfortable climbing sideways of bolts, this is not the route for you.Casual start to the 1st bolt, then easy climbing through lesser quality rock to the 2nd bolt. Go right, then up into a small chimney. Clip bolt 3 and continue up big ledges. Clip bolt 4, which is on the main rock face. Get a rest here and study the holds for the crux traverse. After the traverse, move upwards...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
