Description 

Situated on the west side of the Meadow Dome, the Tan Corridor offers steep vertical climbing with fun and interesting face holds. Most routes here range from 60 to 80 feet and are either sport or mixed lines. Most of the routes are shaded until 1:30pm in the summer, and with help from the trees, some of the routes are shaded most of the day.

Here is a topo of the main corridor area to help you figure where you are :

Getting There 

Follow directions to the Meadow Dome. From the Meadow Dome, head west along the climber access trail. After a couple minutes of hiking, take the first spur off to the north, which leads to the Dungeon and Tan Corridor. Follow the right hand fork and make your way up a series of stone stairs into the Tan Corridor. Do not try to approach via the gulley above the Permission Wall.

Reef On It! 5.10- 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  CO : South Platte : ... : Tan Corridor
Begin at a block that doesn't appear to be very attached to the wall. Don't be afraid to reef on it though, the block has proven to be quite solid. Make bouldery moves up to a good jug, and get your first clip. Some may appreciate a stick clip, but the route has been climbed numerous times without one. Continue up slightly slabby terrain for two more clips then tackle the gently overhanging headwall. Move through the crux pulling on good jugs until the angle lessens once again and you find yours...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
