This is right by the highway, so watch for traffic. As well, it is by the river, so communication can be an issue - have your rope tug signals worked out.

Getting There 

Take CO Hwy 14 - 9.6 miles west of Ted's Place (US Hwy 287 intersection). This is on the south side of the road just past Greyrock parking area, before you get to Poudre Park.

This is VERY well-protected, a nice route for beginning leader at the grade. It is a little dirty with lichen and road dust but overall a fun route with good holds and options the entire way up.The first bolt is an easy 5.6 towards the right side of the face, then move up left towards the 2nd bolt. There is no real crux, just fun, well-protected moves the entire way up.We rapped down from the 2 bolts at the base of the chimney and kinda barely made it to the ground with rope stretch on a 70m.

There is a route around and to the right of Don't Damn it. It looks fairly new with about 7 bolts and a 2 bolt chain station (although the bolts and hangers, and cold shunts are new, but the chains are rusty??). Pretty easy, well bolted route, guessing about the 5.5- 5.6 range. Anyone have any info on this route?
Also there are no longer any chains or anything on the two bolt belay at the top. Plan a walk off unless you bring some slings.

At mile 9.5 (or thereabouts), there is a dirt pull-out on the river-side of the road identifiable by the wooden stairway down to the water. Park here & walk upstream maybe 50 yards.
