Description [Edit]

This wall is right off the County Road and the approach is about a minute. However very secluded. Most of the climbs are on the East side of the rock (facing away from the county road. You can find sport and Trad climbing at "Almost A Tunnel" The rock is the same granite as other climbing areas in BV and gets sun most of the day.

Getting There [Edit]

In the middle of Buena Vista, turn East off US Highway 24 onto Main Street. Go a couple of blocks and turn North onto N. Colorado Street (Chaffee County Rd. 371). After approximately 3.1 miles from Main Street and immediately after the 4th tunnel, you will see a large rock on the East side of the road.
