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 west of Aspen and 28 miles east 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.

Not very good directions. There's like 20 pulloffs if not more. Aug 11, 2011

Does anyone have any beta on the huge boulder resting in the creek 100 yds from the turnoff for LC and just off of Colo 82? While driving down to the camping we checked out this magnificant boulder. There was some chalk on it, so someone has been using it. However, this is a highball specialist's boulder, and it looks very hard in some places. Oct 4, 2010

I'm mainly curious about grades and protection. I'm also not exactly sure how to get there. Thanks Jul 20, 2007
