Description

Nancy's Wall or Nancy's Rock a.k.a. Cyclops Slab is this cool, little 60', sport crag slab with a combination of Monastery's crystalline and Combat Rock's beautiful granite. The routes are all moderate, going from 5.6 to 5.11, I believe. 2 x bolts on a sketchy flake (what was that guy thinking?) is the anchor on top and that is shared by all routes. TR is easy too. There is some potential bouldering around the area as well.

Getting There

Drive towards Loveland on US 34 just past Drake. About 1/4 mile outside Drake, there is some sort of monument on you left and you can see the dam on your right. There is a pulloff on the left side of the road right where the monument is. Right off the pulloff, you see a small trail leading up the hillside and [Nancy's Wall or Nancy's Rock aka] Cyclop's Slab is about a 2 minute hike from the trailhead. Great approach, huh?
