Description 

The Lair is the cave-like feature East of Ra and low on the hill-side. It is just across the tailings field, but it is distinct from the large buttress to the right. A long dead tree presently spans the opening to the cave itself. Four routes are presently on the crag. Bolts on two are visible from the trail. The right-most of these routes provides access to the adjacent buttress and the crags above.

Getting There 

Approach as for Ra and The Halidome. Cross the tailings field at its intersection with the trail. A rough short trail leads to the crag.

Featured Route For The Lair

Tap Line 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  CO : Empire : The Lair
Tap Line provides access to the drainage above The Lair, The Wild Lands. The climb itself is unremarkable, but two bolts were added above the climbing that allow you to approach the crags above, and, more importantly, to descend safely back to the rap station. Tap Line can also serve as a warm-up for the routes in the cave that are substantially more difficult....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
