Description 

This wall is located just a small distance down the road on the left hand side just across the way from Longmont Resevoir. The wall itself contains one short route. This might be a great place to end the day.

Getting There

Follow a leaning finger crack into a dihedral and up over some grovelly stone. The crack itself is surprisingly clean and the size is consistent (this route could easily be led with a single set of nuts and some runners).
