DescriptionWestbay Wall is the second wall (first developed) on the East side of the canyon and as of March 2005 had three sport routes (one project). 100' slabby climbs with amazing views of the canyon topped by Pikes Peak from the top. The park is well populated by hikers, bikers, and horseback riders, and this is the first wall they are likely to walk past, so be prepared for audiences.
All RRC climbing requires a pass available at the Garden of the Gods Visitors center, and while you are there, pick up a guidebook for ten bucks. All proceeds go to benefit climbing in the parks.
This crag faces West, so it gets afternoon sun.
Getting ThereFrom the parking lot, go East (left) and as the trail branches several times, stay East (left) past a pond. Westbay Wall is before the walls that have aspens at the foot so if you are looking for bolts through the trees you have walked too far.
