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.

Pitch 2: set sail up the corner with fingers and stemming up past a few steep sections. Gain a good ledge on the right below a short roof.
