Description

A short, limestone cliff all of one minute up the trail to The Hideaway.

Nice quality with slab/roof climbing.
Located in a National Forest Fee Area Details

Getting There

Park on the left just over .3 miles past the Timp Cave visitors center. If it looks like you need to cross the river, you parked one pullout too soon (the river runs under the road just prior to the correctly pullout, but you can't really tell while driving).

See here for a view of the pullout from the road.

There's a long scree slope running uphill behind the parking area.

The trail heads west (down canyon) from the parking area.

Climbed all the climbs in this area in a day, loved every last one of them, the only probl;em i have with this area is the rope drag. it beats the shit out of your rope if you do not have enough runners to protect the roof, so dont forget your runners. on 5.9 i didnt even clip the first bolt because it requires a double length sling to protect or else you get super bad rope drag and the second bolt is only two moves farther. the 11a was the funnest i thought, i even got a few finger jams in in the small cracks that are scatterd throughout the route. this area is on of the funnest in the canyon i think. found i few loose rocks on the big roof of the 11a. so be careful before being to committing with the holds on the roof Jan 2, 2010

These are all listed on RC.com so I figured I'd add them since I've now climbed all four routes. Help me out on the ratings, I'm told holds have fallen off and they are harder than they used to be. I called Sam Adams .11a because I thought it was a bit harder than o'douls and that one is listed here as .10c/d. We were told Corona is now .11d/.12a due to a key hold falling off, but I'm calling it .11c. If you've climbed these give your input. Jul 7, 2009

the hornet's nest is in the log, so maybe sit on the rocks instead. they were pretty calm, even sitting on the log, as long as their entrance wasn't blocked.

ps - i thought the left route was easier--and less good--than the center. but, yeah, 5.10. Aug 9, 2008
The far right route on beer can is called hornets nest, 5.9. Jun 20, 2008
