Description Suggest change

This entry includes west-facing cliffs much like the bulk of the North Table Mountain routes. These cliffs are to the west of the actual quarry and to the north of the more popular parts of North Table.

Getting There Suggest change

Turn east off of CO-93 onto Pine Ridge Road, then turn left at Wyoming Circle. There is a parking lot here for the north trailhead. Follow the trail up to the base of the cliffs.

Mountain lion warning!

Suggest change

In April 2024, climbers had an encounter with a mountain lion. As they rounded the corner of the cliff below Corruption, talking at a normal volume, a huge mountain lion jumped out of the cave below Catching the Quarry Direct. The little cave below Catching the Quarry Direct may be a favorite hangout of the cat, being about 20 degrees cooler in there. A little concerning as well, as one climber scouted this area solo last week and didn’t see obvious signs of big cat. All in all be cautious, maybe be loud when walking up and bring some friends with you if you access the crag in the near future.
