Description

Sunday Wall is probably the most visited crag in Unaweep Canyon and for good reason. It hosts both sport and trad climbs up to 5 pitches long, on excellent gneiss/granite, ranging from 5.6 to 5.12+. Most routes follow steep cracks or blank looking faces. Sport routes are difficult and exciting, trad routes are asthetic and fun, but take a little getting used to.

The wall is located 2.2 miles West of Divide Road on the North side of CO Hwy 141, on Access Fund property. Park on the North side of the CO Hwy 141 with a wooden stile crossing the fence ~ 10 minute approach. Rock is generally solid but there can be loose sections. Most routes involve a rappel but some walk off and is often sunny. Suggested routes include but are not limited to: Optical Illusions (5.11b A0), Bridge Of Air (5.12), Sweet Sunday Seranade (5.9) and Catch a Wave (5.11a).

Getting There

Drive West from Divide Road for 2.2miles and look for a large dirt pull-out, on the right hand side of the road, with a visible "Access Fund" sign, it's pretty easy.

Huge rockfall from the storms this last weekend (9/27-28) near Sweet Sunday Serenade. Obliterated a green 13" tree at the base. The trail is slightly treacherous through this section. Oct 1, 2014

The "Access Fund" sign is missing, but the wooden stile over the fence looks new and is easy to spot. The large pullout is on the north (right) side of the road, just a little ways before CO 141 mile marker 137 as you are driving southwest. Oct 11, 2010
