Access Issue: Summer closures Details
I believe this area falls under a voluntary closure during mid summer. I speculate it is probably to allow undisturbed cattle for a local rancher with grazing rights.
This formation sits isolated deep within the Circle Creek drainage. The only two known routes are on the east face. It is seldom visited.
Park at the circle creek overlook parking area and follow the double track past the building blocks crag on your left (10 minutes). Continue on the double track making your way up the circle creek drainage and slowly gaining elevation. You will eventually reach a gate (approx. 1 mile). This areas beyond this gate are subject to the seasonal closures. Pass through the gate and shut it behind you. Begin gaining more elevation as you continue to follow the drainage until you come to a good sign that marks Beef Jello/Boxtop trialhead junction- and you take the right fork (well marked). The trail is getting steeper now, but continue up for about another half a mile- the crag will appear on your left and can be identified by a pointy triangle like fin that justs up off of its north side. Follow the drainage up, even though the trail is poor or non-existent, and then contour over to your left, conserving your elevation. Beef Jello (10.d) is the distinguishing feature to head for- the obvious plumb crack in the right facing corner. Expect an hour for the approach.
