Wanna Be Wall as you approach from downstream.

This description was excerpted from a comment under Irok
and credit was assigned to the original poster. To help with organization of the database, this comment was essentially moved into a crag description.
Further west of Punk Rock
, near the river, is a small quartzite wall, Wanna Be Wall with 2 bolted routes, a 10b and a 11a route which share the same anchors. They are unnamed warm up routes.
This crag gets good sun until early afternoon.
The best approach to this area is along the base of River Wall
(located just east of Tunnel 2), which can be walked (water shoes can be useful) anytime after spring runoff. Irok is a bit of a walk up the hill. This approach was engineered before the cable existed by sliding blocks over the ice in the winter of 2000. Using this approach, the first area you get to is Punk Rock
. This crag lies to the west, near the river. It is actually just downstream from Mission Wall and directly below Irok.

This a bit of a squeezed line, but it does go and protects with gear. While climbing with 3 friends, we sort of got to a bottleneck in terms of climbing efficiency, so this line seemed to ask if it could be climbed or led. The answer was yes to both. Given its cleanliness, it certainly could have been done previously. Yet, it seemed to deserve a better name than Unknown, so it is named...at least temporarily.Start up in the chimney just to the left of Wannabe Bolter, protect as high as you th...[more] Browse More Classics in CO

Eds. The elements of the comment which inspired addition of this crag to the database are:
The best approach to this area is along the base of River Wall, which can be walked anytime after spring run off. I engineered this approach before the cable existed by sliding blocks over the ice in the winter of 2000. Using this approach, the first area you get to is Punk Rock.... Further west, near the river, is a small quartzite wall, Wanna Be Wall named after myself, of course, where I bolted a 10b and a 11a route which share the same anchors. They are unnamed warm up routes.
Have fun and enjoy this climbing area away from the noise of the road!
