Description

Despite its secluded location, Site 18 is one of the more popular crags at the City. Three solid, well-protected sport routes and one mixed route all within the 5.7-5.9 range make this a fun destination, especially for those who are looking to gain more experience with leading. The heavily featured granite wall is west-facing, making it a pleasant morning venture.

Getting There

After entering the City of Rocks from the Almo side, drive about a mile and then turn west on the Circle Creek Overlook road. Follow the road to a parking lot. From the parking lot hike west down a road that leads through a fence gate and continues westward. Continue for ½ - ¾ mile to an older road that heads north. Follow it for a few hundred yards, watching carefully for a less than obvious trail that splits off to the left through the brush, heading northwest to Site 18.
