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.

Ingrid pulling the crux

Wessel in the Chicken Coop 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  CO : Boulder Canyon : ... : Chicken Wall
This route is the farthest right route on Chicken Wall, starting by 2 huge old industrial bolts. The climbing is rather forgettable with easy clips from good stances. Most of the good holds are hidden until you're right on top of them. I also found myself zig-zagging to the left and right of the bolt line to reach these holds. Beware the rope drag if you plan on setting up a top rope. Not much more to it, an average 5.9 in my opinion (not that that means much)....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
