This portion of the cliff constitutes the center section of the main, tallest wall. Most of these routes are included in KC Baum's Guide book for the area of Quarry wall.

This is the morning summer crag with great steep climbs and typically good rock. Most climbs can be broken into two pitches or just done in one long one.

Getting There 

Two ways to approach. Park at the pull off area where you turn to get on Divide Road and walk up canyon on CO 141 until you get to a telephone pole and a trail begins to the base of the climbs. You can also drive up Divide Road and pull off the road and rap in.

Climbing Season

For the Main Canyon: Unaweep Granite area.
