Upper Canyon access closed - 8p Mar. 22 - 5p Mar. 28 MORE INFO >>>


Across US Hwy 6 from the parking for Wave Wall is a right to left traverse on dikes. Start with a crux high step to an undercling. End with a step down to a slab/boulder. It is sunny and convenient for a quick workout on the way home from the slopes.


This is alongside US Hwy 6, just a mile or so below I-70 and the big quarry. Park in the large pullout on the upstream side of the uppermost bridge in Clear Creek Canyon, between Tunnel Six and I-70. The Ripple Wall can be seen across the road and 25 feet up.

As the description notes, this section of stone is not part of the Waves Wall at all. It's up canyon on the north side of the road. They are different areas and should not be confused.
