Pull down not out - how can you not climb a route named Pikes Peak when you are here, right? Rocks here can be brittle when anything other than dry (& even then, too). The route moves left after a solid start with a nice finish up to the anchor.
Walk up hill a bit from the parking area and pass the old Bach residence by the on the right and his old garage on the left. Next up on the left is what one might call the mini ripple wall, no routes on this little gem. Past the mini ripple, still on the left is the first wall with routes, Westbay Wall. The next wall after Westbay with routes is the Sayers Wall.
History of the Name
Eds. Apparently, Sayers Wall was named for a local climber, Ryan Sayers, who was killed in 2003 by lightning in the Wind River Range.

The downside is the route is relatively new, and not very well cleaned; a lot of the handholds break off at rather unfortunate times. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
