Description

In the summer of 1993 Alan Nelson and Richard Wright add five routes to upper part of this East-facing gneiss and schist crag. Since these efforts, additional routes have been done in this area. The original crag is now known as Upper Capitalist Crag and the lower/new crag is now known as Lower Capitalist Crag. The routes here are half-rope or less, bolt-protected sport climbs of a moderate level of difficulty.

To avoid duplication, this has been reorganized to reflect this.

Getting There

Drive west from Golden on US Highway 6 to the east side of Tunnel 3. Hike briefly south (perhaps 250 yards) and largely horizontally. You must go down to access Lower Capitalist Crag.

There is a ledge with some exposure to access the left side of Lower Capitalist Crag.
