Description Suggest change

This is the 45' spire that sits by itself north of Montezuma Tower and the Three Graces. Pigeon Rock has perhaps the worst rock in the Garden of the Gods, and is recommended only if you either really like choss or want to hit all the summits in Garden of the Gods.

Getting There Suggest change

Hike towards Montezuma Tower, and look for a climbers trail heading right to the base of the small tower.

All chalk and chalk substitutes are not allowed!

Suggest change

The Park staff want to remind the climbing community that all chalk (calcium carbonate) and chalk substitutes are prohibited in the park due to visual impact starting in 2021.

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….
