Description

The Bypass features a handful of routes on granite with an easy, flat approach on a paved bike path. Situated within spitting distance of one of the most popular trails in Colorado is this little crag, perfect for an after work session or a quick pump. A handful of draws and a short rope is all you need for some quick cranking in Glenwood Canyon. There are a couple gems here, but The Fuse is an excellent climb and worthy alone of the trip.

This area receives morning through mid-day sun and nice shade by early afternoon. The hard routes stay dry in all but the biggest downpours. The interstate is within sight and earshot, but it doesnÂ’t hinder communication and is much less of a nuisance than at the Puoux. All of the routes are new so wear a helmet, check your holds and bring a brush to help clean them up.

Routes L->R:

A. The Wanderer, 10, 1p, 45', bolts.
B. The Fuse, 12-, 1p, 45', bolts.

Getting There

Approach time is 10 minutes. Park at the Hanging Lake rest area (exit # 125). Hike east on the bike path, passing the Hanging Lake Trail. A few minutes past the trail is a rockwall/revegetation project within yards of the trail. Just past that is a couple of large boulders in the grass on the left side of the trail. The Bypass is above. Scramble up a few moves of 3rd class to a grassy terrace below the climbing.
