|As of November 09, a wash has taken out part of the road half way between the cottonwoods and the parking area. A route has been made through the washout and it is passable in a high clearance vehicle with 2WD. Due to the steepness of the drop in and out of the wash, and the short distance, a low clearance or vehicle with a long wheelbase might auger its front end into the opposite bank. Just a heads up since this spot may get worse in the future.|

As of March 21, 2015 there is a NEW approach trail to Pistol Whipped Wall. The Rocky Mountain Field Institute, Access Fund and Front Range Climbing Stewards wrapped up the new trail construction and closure of the old trail. The BLM has constructed a parking lot for climbers to use.
The new trail is located 1/4 mile beyond the old parking lot/trail. There is a cleared parking lot on the right side of the road. The new trail heads toward the crag from a lone juniper tree & cairn across the road. This new trail meanders up the rocky slopes above making use of more than 500 rock steps along the way. Please be sure to stay on this new trail to prevent plant & soil damage.
Please use this trail and allow the old one to recover.
