Description

This is a fantastic crag with a short, steep, somewhat slippery approach. A host of excellent climbs reside here, most being in the 5.11 - 5.12 range. The guidebook doesn't lie in saying that this is some of the best rock in the canyon. Reefer Madness, Recovery, Wet Dream... climb any one of 'em and you'll agree! The climbs can be long here, but a single 60m rope will work for most; knot the ends if in doubt.

Just uphill (to the left) are the crags, The Monkey House and Death Rock.
Seasonal Raptor Closures Details

Getting There

Get to US 6 (the wall is nearer the Golden end of the canyon). The crag is immediately west of Tunnel 2 (5.1 miles west of Tunnel 1). There is a sizeable pullout on the south side of the highway. There's plenty of room to park, but because of all the scree above, the closer you park to the base of the hill, the more likely you are to go home with a crater in your hood. Follow one of two paths up to the base of the wall. There are a few markers you can use to get oriented: On the right side of the wall, there is a large eye bolt at the base of Refer Madness. In the central region, there is a belay bolt at the base of Recovery & Foxy. Of the climbs on the left end, Hey Good Lookin' is the line that goes out the leftmost big roof crack.

If anyone found a green 70m rope in a red black diamond rope bag on 11/4, please call or text me at 8325616313. Nov 5, 2017
I left a climbing rope near the parking lot last Thursday, 6/15. If anyone has it, please let me know! I can reimburse for their suffering. Jun 20, 2017
Bailed off of Wet Dream on Sunday, 5/7/17 during a thunderstorm. I wasn't thinking and left three of my draws on the upper section of the route. If you go up there, please clean and return them to me. I'll by you a beer. Thanks! 3524543203 May 7, 2017

I took down a bright green rope tied off to a belay bolt here yesterday. It was left to help access the Reefer Madness area of the wall is my guess, but you could see it clearly from the road a mile away. I left the rope at the sign in box at the base. If you feel it's necessary to fix a line to access the wall, can you please use a white or black rope? Bright green fixed lines are just screaming for attention from the JeffCo rangers, which we don't need any more of considering all the new regulations. One of which is no fixed gear, btw.

Yesterday there was a pair of La Sportive Solutions at the wall Sunday morning and they were left there all day. I left the shoes at the sign in box at the entrance. Nov 9, 2015
Just climbed here (and CCC) for the first time. Great little crag! What's the deal with the heavy truck traffic? We were here for only an hour or two, in the middle of the day on a Thursday, and the number of trucks seemed to dwindle over that time? May 29, 2015
I think I left a pair of LaSportivas below Curvaceous on 10/10. I went back today and had no luck. If you found 'em, there's a reward for their return (beer). Thanks. Nov 12, 2013

Found: A pair of shoes and a chalk bag. Separate areas, so likely different owners. Let me know if you lost something, and we'll get it back to you. Feb 17, 2013
Hey I was at wall of the '90s the other day, and I found a length of cordelette two black diamond straight gates and a pair of lockers. I found these items at the base of Hey Good Lookin' route. Figured I would see who it belongs to and try to get em back to their owner. Let me know. tybilecky@gmail.com Oct 12, 2012

Trent, there are two more crags up the hill called The Monkey House and Death Rock. Death Rock, however, is not on this site, but the Monkey House is. Death Rock is in the guidebook, though. Oct 9, 2010

I just checked this place out today for the first time. Left cos it looked like rain. But before I did, I was hiking a bit to the left of Alone Time With My Banana and saw a few bolted routes. Are these part of a different area or are they just new? Oct 8, 2010

Does anyone happen to have info on the bolted line just left of Black and Tan? It currently has draws hanging on it all the way up. We climbed on the face up to the first set of anchors before the wild looking roof moves and noticed a red tag on the first bolt (past the first anchors). Is this route/extension new? Is it open to climb on? Thanks! Apr 12, 2010

Another rattlesnake encounter.... Pissed one off last night on the upper trail down from the Wall of the '90s right where it crosses the recent rock slide. The snake was under the bushes/large rock, but then slid down the dirt towards us... exciting! Jul 6, 2007
We encountered a rattlesnake on the approach to Wall of the '90s yesterday, along the dirt path that leads away from the parking lot. I'd never heard of a rattlesnake in CCC before. Be careful! Jul 2, 2007

I just recently had my draws stolen off Ten Digit Dialing, like in the past 4 or 5 days. Does anyone know anything that could help me get them back? I really need them. I won't be pissed off. I just want them back. Thanks. Oct 2, 2006
Best rock in the canyon? I halfway agree. That shield of rock where TDD and Reefer reside is infact beautiful and superb, but the rest is dirty and sometimes loose. Pitch one of Centerfold has many friable flakes and is a tad crumbly in places. Kitten, Vixen and Recovery are all a tad dirty (mostly cause it gets a lot of water runoff), though solid, as are the other routes in this sector.

Best rock I've been on is Reefer (btw, mid 10 if you're tall, 11 if you're short), but best continuous rock goes to Eiger or River Wall.
