Description

This is the smaller multi-summited tower next to Montezuma Tower in the middle of the Garden of the Gods. It holds a wild 5.2 ridge route and some old aid lines, and has an excellent summit.

Getting There

Park at the main parking lot in the Garden of the Gods. Walk in between the large Gateway Rocks past the Twin Spires. The Three Graces is the smaller spire next to Montezuma Tower.

White Chalk is not allowed!

The Park staff want to remind the climbing community that white chalk (calcium carbonate) is prohibited in the park due to visual impact. While any chalk use is discourage, chalk substitute that does not discolor the rock may be used. Eco balls are sold at the Visitor Center.

When placing closure signange/notifications, our park rangers noted chalk stains on several routes in the closure area (Anaconda and Grapefruit Dance), as well as the Blowouts bouldering area (which were cleaned last year, meaning all the chalk here is new). We are again hoping that the community can come together and address this issue before it requires any action on our part. Access may come into play! We'd also like to thank the PPCA for their efforts to remove chalk stains in these areas last year and hope that local climbers might consider helping them remove chalk stains from the rock this season- check their website for more info on upcoming events- pikespeakclimbersalliance.o….
