Description

This area has a mix of sport and trad routes, 1-2 pitches in length. There are a number of crags in this area. It has great climbing and is perfect for the summer. Everyone I have met in this area has only left me with good things to say about them. Like the rest of the Pass, it has exceptional quality and number of routes. Don't miss this area if you are on the Pass. Pick up Tom Perkins' Independence Pass Climbing for routes descriptions.

Getting There

This area is 10 miles EAST of Aspen and 28 miles WEST of Twin Lakes off of CO 82. Look for Lincoln Creek Gulch Campground and park in any number of places off this side road to get to desired crag here.
