Description 

This rock is located in the "Springer Gulch" area of Elevenmile Canyon. This wall presently hold 5 sport routes. The rock here is very wavy and the cruxes tend to be overcoming roofs and bulges to get to the next wave. This wall faces south and is is good cooler weather destination.All of the routes except "English Body" have 2 bolt anchors for lowering. "English Body" has a good tree anchor at the top andcan easily be decended by walking off to the climbers right. I totally recommend "Crest of a Wave", "Body English", and "Scoop Deville".


Getting There 

Drive to the campground that is below the "Springer Gulch" cliff @ 5.4 mile. The crags are easily visible to the north from the parking area at the campground. Park outside the campground in the pullout and head towards the crag. There really isn't an extablished trail, however the terrain is easy and the cliffs are obvious. Reach the "Springer Gulch" cliff after a short 10 minute hike. Head around right from this cliff. When the cliff terminates head uphill about 200 yards to reach the "Scoop Wall" identified by an overhang that runs across the bottom and the wavy bulges above.

Find this route as being the center of the 5 existing routes sport routes on this wall. 5 bolts and 5 cruxes all in the 10 range with good rests in between.
