Description

Nice one pitch climbs, mostly friction, with new bolts and 2 bolt anchors. South facing.

Getting There

Turn to the south off US 285 onto the Foxton Rd. (Actually, with the new intersection, one has to turn right, then go under US285.)Drive the newly paved Foxton Rd. to its end at the junction with Jeffco 96. Turn left and drive 8.5 miles to the second of 2 large parking lots with toilets on the right side of the road (3.0 miles past abondoned S. Platte hotel at confluence, 2.3 past bridge for Colorado trail, 0.5 miles past the Java Dome/Bali Dome approach valley, 0.4 miles past the no swimming signs). Park then walk south along the road (Half Dome is just above) for 200 yards, then cut uphill to a faint trail that loops back to the north and leads to the crag. 15 minutes. Crag is not visible from the north, but if you drive too far, there will be a major road junction in another 1.5 miles or so, so one could turnaround and see it from the south.

Went to Murphy's for a short day, looks like at least a few of the anchors have been upgraded and at least 2 new routes (1 sport, 1 sporty although I think I spotted some rock dust, so perhaps it's still being worked on?). Apr 10, 2016

Expect some friable rock, doesn't seem like Murphy's gets much traffic. Apr 22, 2012
