Description

This small crag lies behind Reynold's Hill, along with a collection of other crags like Spelunk Spire and Old Devil's Playground. Two lines grace the crag, the splitter Soft Parade 11c and the thrutchy Parade Rest 10a. Worth the walk, for the views alone.

Getting There

Begin your approach as for Reynold's Hill. After crossing the creek, head right on a trail that meanders above and along the creek. After passing high ground and returning to near the creek bed, views of Old Devil's Playground across the creek come at about half a mile down the trail. Your eye can't miss the distinct arch of Muscle and Fitness. Shortly after this section of brushy trail a very faint trail (easy to miss) leads up and left slightly up slope past a small open area, then sparse trees into another rising meadow. Quickly the trail grows distinct. A few hundred yards and you will approach Spelunk Spire, across a meadow on the right. Continue on the trail through some aspen until Parade Rock rises off the trail.

Per John L: the shortest approach is to take 700 NB past Upper Devil's Playground. To be exact, see: goo.gl/maps/eUX8rngzijK2.

Cross the creek, and hike up 700BB3. This approach takes ~5-10 minutes.
