DescriptionDinosaur Rock is home to a number of easy to moderate slab routes...and now some excellent sport climbs on its north face. There are a number of scrambling approaches from Bear Canyon, but the easiest approach is from the Mallory Cave Trail. There a couple variations on the east face and a couple on the south.
The standard descent route is to downclimb the west face route (5.0). There is a tree about 30 feet down this route that can be used for a single rope rap. There are bolted anchors on the north face.
Getting TherePark at NCAR, and follow the Mallory Cave Trail past Square Rock. The first major rock formation that the trail runs into is Dinosaur Rock. There will be a sign near the base showing the bird closures around Bear Creak Spire in the Spring. A good trail leads you to the east and south faces. The approach time is 30-40 minutes. Count on some extra time to get to the west face climbs.
