Description Suggest change

This is the northern-most section of the the Flatirons which may be lumped together to help you find your way here. Included in the area is the better known Amphitheatre and some of the less-well known crags here (like 3rd, 4th, 5th pinnacles). Apparently, according to Rossiter, there is even a granite crag in this canyon. One route from this canyon even made the cover shot of a Boulder non-climber publication.

Some shade can be found at some of the crags for those seeking cooler cragging in the hotter months. None of these routes are long here.

Access can be most readily obtained by parking in or near the Gregory Canyon Trailhead. Parking is popular here and, as a result, limited. Note, parking here does cost for non-Boulder County registered vehicles. 2006 was still $3/day and $25/year. However, street parking nearby and parking at Chataqua (0.6 mi) is free.

Also, for those wandering around with little kids, this is bear and mountain lion territory. Be careful.

There is also significant poison ivy in the area for the sensitive.

Getting There Suggest change

US 36 to Baseline. Go W past 6th Ave and look for the trailhead area on the left. Parking is also available on 6th, 7th, 8th, and at Chatauqua.
