The Dungeon Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Staunton Rocks.
This wall hosts a handful of long, mixed, trad, and sport lines. Plan on bringing a light rack. The wall stays shady until mid afternoon (some routes all day), and many of the routes remain dry in a downpour. While the rock is not as good as what is found in the Tan Corridor, the climbing is quite fun. The routes should mprove with more traffic. For now, I'd say it's 4 star movement on 2 star rock. Bring a helmet and enjoy.
Follow the Climber Access trail past the Permission Wall, and take the spur for the Tan Corridor/Dungeon. Hang a left at the first cliff you encounter, and follow that trail. Once you are at a obvious left switchback, stay right and follow cairn's to the base of the steep wall.

Start just left of New Beginnings, and climb up and left through some 11+ climbing to get to a huge jug. From there, trend up and left on mostly jugs to encounter a midway crux that is probably 12c on its own. This route builds in pump the higher you climb until reaching a great rest towards the top. Rest up on the ledge, a...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
