Description 

Home to two of the finest sport routes on Independence Pass--as well as one of area's best looking open projects--Wild Rock is a crag not to miss. The harder routes on the east face get morning sun and afternoon shade.

Getting There 

Park on the right side of the road approximately a 1/4 mile before the upper boulderfield (1/2 mile past mile marker 52). Cross the highway, pick up a small path through the woods, and head up the talus above to the obvious giant boulder sitting on the hillside.

Featured Route For Wild Rock
Jay Knower sets up for the crux of Wild Thing.

Wild Thing 5.13a 7c+ 29 IX+ 29 E6 6c  CO : Independence Pass : ... : Wild Rock
This is another Pass classic at the grade. Steep, juggy climbing up a corner leads to a cool roof encounter and a good rest after the crux. A few more technical moves gain the chains. This is a great antidote to the generally thin climbing on the Pass....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
