Description

This crag is seldom visited. It is a 300' slab directly south of the Upper Great Face. The rock is a little loose and dirty.

There may only be a route or two here. Highlander and Soft Target are established routes here.

This organizational entry was added, since Soft Target was submitted and was on the Lower Great Face page.

Getting There

There are 2 approaches to this crag. Neither is a trail. Expect an hour at least to approach. Get your bearings before heading into the trees. Use the Upper Great Face as a target. Both approaches will require some reorientation once you clear the trees. The first starts from the Twin Sister's Trailhead off Hwy 7, past the Lily Lake Visitor Center, S of Estes Park, just across from Lily Lake. Hike along the trail for perhaps a half mile to the third switchback, then head up the hill. Not very specific but that is what it is. The other approach is signed as private property just past the Baldpate Inn, off Hwy 7, across from Lily Lake. There is a chained-off dirt road that indicates you can hike private property lines the road. At some point a short distance down the road, you can break off uphill from the dirt road, go up through the forest, and reorient when you clear the trees.
