This is a sport climbing wall with many moderate lines in the 10-11 range with a 12b and 13a also. These are short lines (average 4-5 bolts), but they have steep and generally sequential techical climbing.


Getting There 

From the visitor center at the South entrance, take the Inner Canyon Trail to the creek bottom. Head up the hill to the NE when you before you get to the power line. The Playground is about 150 yards East of the Juggernaut area.

Ben getting one last piece in before the flake ends.

Pulling the Flake 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ E1 5a  CO : Denver South : ... : The Playground
This climb gets a 10a rating because of the first two moves to get into the crack. Once you've established yourself in the flake, the climbing is 5.8 to the top. The flake ends about 6 feet from the top; you can use a 2-bolt anchor 6 feet to the right to rap back down....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

One of the best sites in CWC for short challenging sport routes. Very accessable from the trail. Great on sunny fall/winter days. Not too busy usually.
