Description

A crumbly, roadcut/blasted, roadside crag with several bolted routes. This crag won't win any awards, but it's easy to access and is near to a nice picnic area. TWC receives good sun, even in the winter. Some faces have moderate lichen growth. There is a substantial amount of loose scree and some larger rocks can pop off, too.

Several of the routes are protected with a mix of pitons and bolts; some routes have only one chain at the top (so bring some slings). There are a few routes with green hangers. The routes are all very close to the road (belayer beware!).

Walk up a sloping ramp past the rightmost route and duck under some barbed wire to set TR on (at least some of) the routes. Alternately, walk up the left side, past the "turd."

Getting There

From the intersection of CO 7 & US 36, go ~3.5 miles upstream. This is about halfway between mile marker 30 and mile marker 29. TWC is on the right hand side of the road directly across from a low-lying picnic area. There is a yellow "Falling Rock" road sign at the base of one of the routes.

Parking is available just upstream of the picnic area on the stream-side of the road, or on any one of several pullouts in the immediate vicinity.

Approach is short (depending on parking): 30 seconds to 2 minutes.

Google Maps is being finicky with the GPS coords, so take them with a grain of salt.
