Description

This crag features 8 routes, extremely close to the road. Unfortunately, the climbs lack in the length department, and most of the crux sections are tough but short lived. It is not the area for a good, sustained pump, but it is good for a quick burn and some trad practice with nothing too stressful.

Per Nelson Lunsford: this crag is nice when the winds are bad coming down the canyon.

Getting There

From the Stultz trailhead, continue south away from Canon City for 1.25 miles. It's close to the road but hard to see, it's off to your right and has power lines running in front of the wall. Just past the wall there is a small one or two car pulloff.

This spot is nice when the winds are bad coming down the canyon. The bend in the canyon takes the wind up and over this spot. Apr 8, 2013
