Description

Also known as the Pinnacle, lower west face, this 40' high, [East]-facing cliff rises directly above the creek. It is just south of the footbridge opposite the parking area for the Pinnacle. In fact, you will walk past these climbs on your way to the Pinnacle. This is a good place to toprope. Many climbers will sling trees on top of the cliff for anchors.
Reopened after flood damage! Details

Getting There

Follow the directions for North Cheyenne Canyon and park at the Pinacle parking area. It is 0.85 miles from the canyon entrance to a pullout on the right hand side of the road. This is just west of the Pinacle.

The approach information for this area needs to be updated. The cliff is on the west side of the Pinnacle; however, it faces East not West. Just go across the footbridge like you're heading to the Pinnacle, and go straight uphill. This cliff will be immediately on your right. Easy 5 minute or less approach.

Enjoy this area for what it is. It is an excellent place to practice your climbing techniques. There are lots of spots to place gear at ground level. It's also a nice area to practice aid climbing. I couldn't find a trail to set up a top rope, so come prepared to lead or do some exploring until you find your way to the top. Apr 23, 2016

Climbed at this area yesterday. Not really worth the effort or time. The routes are short and the anchor options on top are poor/sketchy. Not really worth the time. Keep going up the hill and get on the routes further up the Pinnacle. They are much more worthwhile, and you'll spend more time climbing and less time dicking around with setting up sketchy anchors for mediocre routes. Aug 26, 2013

Very nice area to climb the rock is ok and offers a lot of options for different gear placements, nice approach. Been teaching some friends the finer points of clean aid and I can tell ya that you will find a place for everything from ball nuts to hooks or cam hooks to threading old pins w/hero loops or hand placing sawed offs in old scars, it's all there.

One note if ya see an old f&^ *er up there TR-aiding something it's prolly me. If I'm on anything you wish to climb, let me know and I will gladly move. You might have ta yell at me if I'm alone, cus I'm probably groovin' the iPod to some "Lamb of God "or other heavy/death metal.
I use this area as a gym to keep in shape and never have a problem with moving for anyone.... Aug 8, 2009
