Description

a new area with several climbs already (everything from 5.8 - 13+ with projects as well) thanks to alli rainey and matt wendling. most climbs here are 12s and up although there are a enough 10s and 11s to have fun if this is your range.

Getting There

Head up the canyon past Meadowlark lake. Shortly after passing the Meadowlark ski lodge, turn right on High Park Rd. Continue for a few minutes until passing a cattle guard, and turn right on Rd 433. Take this fairly washed out road passed the lookout tower and through some trees. Immediately after clearing the trees, there is a faint road on the left. This is where the approach starts (we parked at the end of this faint road and got a warning from the forest service, so probably best to park on Road 433, coordinates 44.155558, -107.211718). From here, hike down the faint road past a "no motor vehicles" sign. Follow cow trails through the natural drainage in a SW direction through the sage brush field. You'll pass a water tank and some old piles of logs. At the end of the field, there is a small aspen grove with a large cairn in it. You are now only about 5 mins from the Temple. Take a slight left (go south) at the large cairn towards a prominent drainage ditch. You'll cross over the drainage ditch and then pick up the trail and cairns again. Follow cairns and a feint climbers trail until you reach the rim of the canyon and a rather precarious scree field. The Temple is down the scree field to skier's right.
