DescriptionThis is a long cliff face on the north side of the town of Morrison. There is a section for all of the amazing bouldering that is there (Morrison Boulders). This is for the trad/sport routes that are there.
The rock type is a hard sandstone and the Crag is Southwest facing, so it gets lots of sun afternoon.
Getting ThereFrom C-470 take the Morrison Exit West. The crag is right as you enter the town and there is a parking area on the side of the road right where the road splits off with a one way street. The parking is on the one way street.
The approach is steep and very short. There is a path up the hill near a sign at the beginning of the parking area. Or you can follow the road/path east, follow a path up some talus area and end up near the Black Hole boulder area.
