The Frying Pan Rock Climbing
Right end of the Frying Pan.
This area encompasses various crags along Frying Pan Road.
Depends on the crag, but for the main Frying Pan cliff (The Skillet), drive 12 miles on Frying Pan Road from where it starts in Basalt. Park at a pullout on the right (South) immediately before a road that breaks off to the right and down to the Reudi Dam. Walk 50' back along the road and begin hiking up a talus field near a brown marker post.
