The New Economy Cliff is located on the south-side of Clear Creek Canyon, about one mile upstream from Tunnel #3. The most obvious feature on the cliff is a large, white right-facing corner on the right (west end) side of the cliff. There is a obvious pullout on the south side of the road. The cliff can be approached by wading the creek or by a Tyrolean traverse located about 500 feet upstream from the parking area. All routes are bolt-protected and end at bolt anchors. There are currently 15 routes ranging in grades from 5.10 to 5.12c. The cliff facing north and makes for a great early morning crag during the hot summer months.

Getting There

Travel west through Clear Creek Canyon a mile past Tunnel #3. Park at a pullout on the south-side of the road. Park here. Wade the creek or use the tyrolean traverse (NO LONGER) located 500 feet upstream from the parking area.

We spent a superb day at the New Economy Cliff, however, it would be useful to have a photo of the right and left sides of this cliff with route annotations as well. Once again, congratulations to Bob D'Antonio and his partners for creating a fine climbing spot that most of have been ignoring for all these years. Sep 9, 2002

The Tyrolean is missing and the creek to high to wade, save it for Fall. Jul 23, 2003

River was high but doable today. We found a couple of places to cross with the water up to mid/upper thigh.

Worth noting that this time of year the wall actually gets sun until 10 or 11 am. Aug 11, 2016
