The Main Cliff will be easy to recognize, being a long continuous band of rock towering 100 to 200 ft above. It follows along the ridge line, descending South for well over a thousand ft and is disrupted by two large North facing corner systems. Look for the most striking features and more than likely the routes will be obvious. Many of these routes are two pitches in length. An obvious feature and reference point is the Wishbone, aka The Viper, that follows a thin trad crack to a convergent A-frame roof, route #5. A short way to the left is the super-crimpy and much shorter route Spanky, #8. As you hike the base of this crag the wall just becomes more and more awe inspiring with the clear potential to hold some of the most difficult climbing on the front range.
Getting There [Edit]
Hike South 400 to 500 ft from the first appearance of the large blocks and boulders that make up the North end of the crag. The main cliff band runs South from here. Near its end is a gully system that can be used to access the upper tier.
