Description

Rincon is a small but amazing crag with probably the highest density of quality routes in all of Eldorado Canyon State Park. Classic and awesome traditional climbs abound here and should not be missed. While nearly all the climbs here are in the moderate range, certainly the 5.10s-5.11s are better represented. There is little for the low or high end climber here, but there is much to feed the soul of a large percentage of climbers. The views are soothing and extend to the continental divide. It's worth the walk.

Although there are a few bolted lines, you will likely need your rack and protection skills to succeed here.

Often on a nice weekend, for good reason, this wall along with the West Ridge can be very popular with climbers. Its southern exposure makes it particularly pleasant during cooler months although early days in summer months can be delightful as well.

There are so many fine routes here! Some of the best include: 5.8 Crack, 5.8; 5.10 Crack, 5.10a; Rincon, 5.11a/b; Center Route, 5.11a/b; Camoflauge, 5.12c.

Descents include some rappels or downclimbing gullies both L or R of the crag.

Note, if anyone has particularly good base digital photos for rendering a topo for this page, please let me know.
