Getting weather forecast...
This is usually not crowded. The rock here is better and more stable than the rock at The Palace, although I'm not sure what type. There are at least 4 or 5 two pitch sport routes here, and I believe there are a few single pitch routes around the corner of the main wall.
Head up CO Highway 14 (aka Poudre Canyon) west of Ft. Collins. A short while after you pass the Mishawaka Amphitheatre, you will go through a tunnel. There are pull-offs right after the tunnel on the right and left side. The great thing about this place is you don't have to cross the river!! After parking, walk north along the west side of the road and you'll come across some purple ropes which will help you to climb up the rocks. Follow the trail (not a great trail, marked by stacked rocks) up to the big wall that lies before you, and have fun!
