Description

This area offers some pretty good sport climbing from 5.6 to 5.12 with most routes falling in the 5.10 to 5.11 range. All of the cliffs face south, but their aspects vary from slightly east to slightly west so finding shade is still possible. Rock quality also varies but is generally really good especially on the more popular routes.

Getting There

This group of cliffs is located about 10 miles east of Aspen and has three separate parking areas depending on which walls your trying to get to. Parking for most of the climbs is on the north side of the road just before the MM 52 sign.
