Description

Why would anyone want to go to this rock? I don’t know… but here’s a description. The rock sits just to the NE of the parking lot for the Cynical Pinnacle, and the dome. It’s right off the road, and on a few of the climbs you pretty much have to stand on the road to belay. The climbs are all pretty mediocre and probably best to be done as top ropes (which are very convenient to set up) as the bolts on the slab routes are typical old South Platte death traps. All in all the climbs on this rock are harder then they look, and if your looking to maybe hang out by the river, drink a few beers, BBQ, and play around on the rock this might be a worthwhile area.
