Description Suggest change

This is a large, South-facing, mass of granite, just north of US 36, East of Estes Park, before Fish Creek Rd. It is easily seen from US 36 and draws the eye as you go past. Apparently the private Crocker Ranch below the cliff makes access difficult. Douglas Snively & Billy Westbay climbed a 5.11 roof route on the lower left side in the 1970s according to B. Gillett in his Rocky Mountain National Park, The Climber's Guide, Estes Park Valley printed in 2001. There seems little else documented in standard guidebooks for the area. I'm sure there has been other explorations....

Getting There Suggest change

From Estes Park, drive E on US 36 just past Fish Creek Rd. It is visible on the N (L). From Denver/Lyons, drive W on US 36 until nearly into Estes Park. Look N (R). Exact and most-access friendly parking is not obvious. Clearer directions from the cognoscetti may avoid conflicts....

Addendum: currently legal access is not possible. Lisa Foster's hiking guidebook indicates all of the south face and 100m from the summit are private property.
