DescriptionThis is a great out-of-the-way area on the way to Estes Park with a choice of long (12-16) clip sport face routes, as well as a few shorter, sport routes on varied granite with a choice of long, slabby crystal pinching routes to short, bulging, gym style climbing. This area has seen very little climbing since it was bolted by Snively, Hill, and Gillett in '98, so there are few friable flakes here and there. Do expect a lot of solitude and some great scenery to make up for the approach that is a LOT longer than the ten minutes claimed by Gillett.

Getting ThereThis is a hard to find area, but it is worth the time to figure out. The easiest way to locate it is to drive up (W) the Big Thompson Canyon to the handicapped fishing pullout past Drake. Turn around and drive back down looking for a one car pull-out on the left (N) using Gillett's topo of the area on the tiny upper right hand corner of page 191 of his guide to find the spot about 0.4 mi. below the handicapped turnout and JUST!! past a blasted rock-roadcut area. Park and follow an initially steep but gradually easier, somewhat cairned trail, first to the west then to the east, to find the base of the rock. This is about the same length as the approach to Animal World or Upper Security Risk in Boulder Canyon.
