Has anyone found a stick clip beneath Dark Pony/Dream of Poudre? Mar 28, 2014
This crag has some of the the best sport climbing wall in the Poudre Canyon; steep climbs, great movement over some of the cleanest rock I've climbed out here. I'm a huge fan of Crystal Wall, and the climbing here is easily as good as the tough stuff there, but much steeper. May 31, 2010
This is the Upper Echelon Wall in the Triple Tier Area as described in Leubben, Cross, and Scott's guide (NCCC's page and the Poudre Route Guide ). Great routes on this wall.

Caution! Most of the routes on this wall will require a 60m rope. Some of the routes in the center of the wall (ODK, Dream of Poudre, etc) may even stretch your 60m. Apr 19, 2010
