Description 

Tucked away in the trees but just off the road, the Wild Rock area boasts some of the greatest bouldering on the Pass as well as some of the best hard sport routes on Wild Rock itself. Bring a crash pad and a rack of quickdraws and you could climb great problems for days or challenge yourself on one of Indy Pass' hardest open projects!

Getting There 

From Aspen, drive 11 miles and park on the righthand side of the road, just past mile marker 52. Look for a faint trail on the other side of the road.

Climbing Season

For the Independence Pass area.

Rock Climbing Photo: Got the triangle.

Sex Machine V4 6B  CO : Independence Pass : ... : James Brown Boulder
This problem was and absolute classic! Start off from good hands and move up to a triangle shape jug. From here the business starts. Either move up to a marginal intermediate crimp and bump for the top or I watched my partner throw from the triangle all the way to the lip. Either way it's super fun! ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
