Description 

The Clock Tower is the second most popular crag at the Sport Park, after Surprising Crag. It gets morning shade, making it a good choice for a hot day. It has a number of fun routes, mostly in the 5.10 to 5.11 range, although there are a few 5.9s.

It's divided into two areas: the left side of the crag is the Chicken Wall. It has a number of fun 5.10 routes. The right side of the crag is the Upper Wall. It has some harder routes in the 5.11 and 5.12 range.

Getting There 

Take a right when you get to the aqueduct trail; shortly after take a trail up left to the crag. You'll come up to the crag at the Chicken Wall, near the route Daddy Blocker.

Featured Route For The Clock Tower
Rock Climbing Photo: Just after the crux reach....

Butt Luscious 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  CO : Boulder Canyon : ... : Upper Wall
This climb starts on the upper tier of the Clock Tower, a bit left of the mid-point on the crag. A single hard pull (5.11c) up a blankish start leads to a good ledge and a very long reach to a decent horn, a very height-dependent move, and the crux at 5.11+ (but look at the comments). Haul up over the horn to great 5.11 face climbing on excellent edges and deep, incut flakes.It is a great climb worth all three stars for the climbing moves, continuity, and quality of the stone....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
