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
Gabe moving over the crux with ease.

Infa-Red Riding Hood 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ E1 5a  CO : Boulder Canyon : ... : Upper Wall
This is located on the Upper Wall of the Clock Tower. This is the furthest route to the right, just up and right of the main roof routes. The bottom of the route is fairly simple, but the upper half, using the crack (partial hand jam) is the crux indeed. Reaching that jug by the 6th bolt may be harder than it looks. Perhaps this is the only route I have climbed in the Sport Park that could use the rating upped a grade or so. 5.10b....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
