Description Suggest change

This is 600 feet of friendly granite close to the road, 40 routes of cracks and face of all difficulty, 1 to 5 pitchs in length, a classic 5.9 on the South Face, need I say more?

Getting There Suggest change

From Boulder: take US 285 to Pine Junction. Right on CO Hwy 126 to Deckers. South on CO 67 through Deckers. Take a right at West Creek on S.R. 68. Continue for about a half-mile and look for a large dome on the right. Park at a pullout below the dome on the right side of the road at a break in the fence and the start of a small path. Hike this faint path to the base of the South Face.
