Description

A secluded southwest-facing steep limestone wall. The majority of the routes here are in the 5.11 to 5.12 range. Be prepared for some loose rock by bringing a helmet and sunglasses. This is a crag with some very quality routes and an amazing view across the valley of Pikes Peak and the Temple.

Getting There

To access Caveman Wall continue walking west along this path, in the general direction of the Temple. After a few minutes you will come to a gradual turn to the left (south). Begin looking for a cairn appearing on the right side of the trail. When you are at the cairn go straight west over small scrub oak and begin down a reasonably well-defined trail, continuing southwest. Continue down this trail until you are between limestone cliffs to your left and to your right. The cliff to your left (south) is shady side. The cliff to your right (north) is Caveman Wall.

If you missed the cairn you will end up walking due south along a dirt road (not RRR). At some point try to cut right, to the west and rejoin the trail, trending in a westward direction.

Here's to Caveman Coffee! I remember drinking white-zombies back at comps at the 8th street gym. I only ever knew Dana and Floyd (I think Floyd worked there, could be wrong), haven't seen either in years and years. Anybody have pics from that gym by chance?

Anyhow, in terms of the rock quality, Williams really isn't that bad. Suck it up and have a good time in a beautiful canyon. Someday a little risk, seclusion, and near-virgin rock might be hard to find on the Front Range. Mar 2, 2010
The Caveman Wall is awesome. Great for winter cragging. A beautiful south-facing sunny little amphitheater with a bunch of fun short sport routes, including the steeper routes in the canyon. Despite comments, the rock quality is quite good and I'd recommend this cliff to anyone. Plus the view of Pikes Peak is a simply amazing backdrop. I'm truly sorry Andrew did not enjoy this cliff, but do not let him discourage you from checking it out and forming your own opinion. Mar 2, 2010
