Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionThis crag has dark granite (I think), and it is approximately 65' high and the same in width. There are two sport and four trad climbs with multiple TRs in between. There are two sets of two bolt anchors on the face, above the roof. It's a stretch to set up a TR on those, so be careful.
A. 5.7 Face, 7, 1p, gear or TR.
B. 5.7 Dihedral, 7, 1p, gear.
C. 5.7 Arete, 7, 1p, TR.
D. 5.9 Crack aka "Into the Void", 9, 1p, 60', gear.
E. 5.10a Face, 10-, 1p, bolts.
F. 5.10 Crack aka "Thin Fingers", 10- C0/A0-1, 1p, gear.
G. 5.9 Face, 9, 1p, bolts.
H. 5.8 Crack, 8, 1p, 45', gear.
Eds. Beware of rattlesnakes here!
Getting ThereFrom US 6, take Lookout Mountain road 1.7 miles to a parking pullout on the right side. If that is full, go around the switchback and pull off on the left side. The trail goes East of the first pullout mentioned and puts you on top of the crag. From there you can go left and down to the base. The trail down is loose, so be cautious.
Post Rock Cleaning Note
After a rock cleaning effort, the top left side of the crag has changed. At least one set of anchors is no longer there. Please be careful.
Per Robert Pearson: JeffCo Open Space issues commercial permits for this crag. They are supposed to still share the crag with other climbers. Call Cathy at Open Space 303-271-5981 for details.
