Description 

This newly developed wall in Eagle's Peak canyon hosts a few quality climbs. The rock is mostly good, but watch out for typical front range loose rock and choss. Bolts will be put in soon, but for now it's all gear with a solid tree for an anchor at the top. There's an easy walk-off to the right.

L->R:

A. Form 34, 8, 1p, 60', gear.
B. Frat Hit, 10+ PG-13, 1p, 45', gear.
C. Article 15, 10-, 1p, 45', gear.
D. Behind Closed Doors, 11-, 1p, 50', gear.
E. Project, 12+, 1p, 45', TR.
F. Demerit, 8, 1p, 40', gear.

Getting There 

This is the first wall up the Eagle's Peak trail. It's off the trail to your left at an obvious break in the trees that provides a clear view of the wall. Right now there's not too much of a path up there, but it's pretty straightfoward to get up. Once you reach the cliff, the climbs are around the corner to the right.

This is a fun route navigating a dihedral to a thin crack and finally face climbing with solid jugs to a stellar top out. The first crux is most definitely getting established in the dihedral (be sure you're solid at the grade because the protection before getting established is unreliable at best), with a second through the thin crack....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
