DescriptionThis area has climbing similar to Liberty Cap (on same cliff band). Many quality crack climbs of various grades are available. There are around 10-15 climbs.
Getting ThereFrom I-70, take the Fruita exit 19 and head south on highway 340 (Broadway), over the Colorado River, past Rimrock, past the Monument Canyon Trailhead, and 0.8 miles more until you get to South Broadway.
Turn right on South Broadway. In about 0.6 of a mile the road will veer left and run alongside the monument. Very shortly after, about 0.2 of a mile on the right hand side, will be a break in the fence and about enough room to park two or three cars. This is the Gold Star Canyon trail head.
From the break in the fence take the trail that heads off left and hike for a little over a mile, staying down low near the fence, then look for a small game trail on the right that heads to the upper tier. It will be just before a big drainage of metamorphic rock. Walk up that and the cliffs will be on the right hand of the U-shaped/ bowl of sandstone wall.
