Description

This crag has some of the best single pitch crack climbs in the area.  Walmart Tower and Safeway Spire are not located in this section and have been relocated to Ute Canyon.

Getting There

Drive west out of Grand Junction on Broadway (CO 340) into the Redlands. Drive approximately 3 miles turning left (south) onto Redlands Parkway. After 0.5 mile, the road curves right (east) and becomes South Broadway at South Camp Road. Continue west on South Broadway for approximately 0.5 mile to Wildwood Drive, turning left at the Liberty Cap Trailhead Sign and parking lot on the right. A 30-40 minute hike, level at first then steep, will bring you to a sign reading "to Rim Rock Drive - Liberty Cap Trail (right) Ute Canyon Trail (left)". Take Ute Canyon, follow it until the buttress is on the left, look for a path that leads up the cliff face. (Courtesy of Desert Rock III, Eric Bjornstad.)

Per Jonathan S: the trailhead is now called "Wildwood Trailhead" and is there on Wildwood Dr.
