Tollhouse Rock Rock Climbing
Spring is flowering atop Tollhouse!
The main wall of Tollhouse Rock holds slab routes and a couple classic cracks up to four pitches in length. It gets stellar winter sun, and is a great fall - spring weekend destination. Face climbs tend to be run out. Some folks have said that ratings are sandbagged. Judge for yourself - they tend to be graded a little harder than most places I've climbed in Colorado.
From the top of the 4WD road, head down the slab approach gully and cut right underneath the sport slab, following a faint trail through the manzanita. Staying close to the wall, routes will appear on the right. Tollhouse Traverse is the obvious left-trending wide crack starting about half way across the face, and is a good landmark for other routes.

Because this route is so new, there are still some loose patina edges that will eventually break off and thus a bit of care does need to be exercised when choosing what to stand on. Nevertheless, I have given this route 4 stars because I think that in a few seasons, this route will clean up nicely and warrant the giv...[more] Browse More Classics in CA

I noted on March 14, 2015 that the climb just to the left of "At Your Leisure" (Upper Traverse Area) is not finished yet. The first bolt with a hanger is only partway in the rock because the first ascentionist (not me but someone I know) forgot his hammer. It is difficult to see from the belay ledge below that the bolt is not fully placed yet.
