Description 

This is an east-facing quarry wall that has a few nice diamonds in the rough amidst the quarry walls. Avoid the rubbled areas.

Getting There 

Hike north quarry road grade from CO Highway 93 and the new North Table Mountain Park parking lot (~1 mile north of CO 93 and Washington). Then go southward straight into the real North Quarry.

I just published a guidebook titled "Golden Rock Climbs" that is a complete guide to North Table Mountain (including the four newly developed quarry walls) and the sport climbs of Golden Gate State Park near Dude's Fishing Hole. There is approach and route information to the Sea Cliffs. I especially enjoyed "Sunrise" (5.11a) and "Moonwalk" (5.11c). "Daybreak" (5.11b/c) and "Star Shine"(5.11c) are also good sport routes even though some friable rock is encountered near the top. This crag offers a good pump for the 5.11 climber. Belayers should definitely wear sunglasses as small pieces of rock still come off. A helmet isn't a bad idea either. The big blocks have been cleaned off.
