Getting weather forecast...


This is a great wall with 22 climbs from 5.8 to 5.11 with one 5.12-. I found this area to be a lot of fun with good rock. At first, it was a little scary to yard on the embedded rocks, but they seemed really solid.

Getting There

After crossing the creek head up and right. I was there in June and a large snow field made the approach a pain. Look for the Family Values buttress and head a little right.

Prime Climbing Season


This area only gets morning sun and is otherwise dark and chilly. Bring your helmet because there is hundreds of feet of loose rock cliffs above this crag. The consistency of both the rock and steepness of this area make most of the climbs feels very similar to each other.
If you like sport climbing on well bolted San Juan conglomerate in a spectacular alpine setting, you'll love it though!
Bring a helmet, 60m rope, a dozen quickdraws, and raingear. Jun 3, 2009
