This is the most accessible and featured climbing area along the Lower Pine to date. This wall is sunny in the morning and shady in the afternoon. This wall has highly secluded climbing on conglomerate granite that protects quite well. This is a large 1000' tall formation with many routes and a cool summit.
Hike approximately 1 mile on the Pine River trail until you come to the Indian Creek drainage on the left. Stay on the west side of Indian Creek and do an ascending traverse up at right following faint elk trails to the base of the wall-look for renegade cairns. A huge cave about halfway up this wall is a good landmark to identify. The approach is about a 1200' foot slog up from the trail and valley floor. Approach takes about 1 to 1.5 hours depending on if you find the proper game trail. Make sure to not leave the trail until Indian Creek, because the Pine River Trail in this area is an easement through private property. Enjoy!

This is a nice, long moderate with excellent belay stances and fun, varied climbing. It is one of the more continuous lines in the area. An old pin was recently found about 750' up this climb at the bottom of a nice dihedral variation. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
