Description

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

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.
