As far as I know, there is only one route on this formation. The rock is granite like everything else in the Big Thompson Canyon. Not very good in the summer as it is full on South facing.
Getting There [Edit]
Going from Estes Park to Loveland on US Hwy 34. Drive about 1.5 miles from the town of Drake (the turnoff for the Monastary and Combat Rock). Park in a big dirt pullout by the Dam. Hike up a gully North of the parking lot for about 30 minutes to the base of the obvious skull formation.
