Description

This is a large formation by mile marker 10 on Rampart Range Road.

Getting There

See the guidebook.... It has great approach info and a pretty good map. Near mile marker 10 on Rampart Range Road is a pullout with parking. Just back down the road (east?) across the street from mile marker 10 is a somewhat obvious trail. Follow cairns for a short hike around the south side of the formation. This trail leads to the slab below the south face.

This high quality crag is a great one to visit almost any time of day, all summer. It gets afternoon shade, but also has a nice pine tree to hide out from the occasional hail storm. Wipeyur has 2 tiers of climbing, with the lower tiers offering mostly technical 5.10 climbing, and the climbs above, harder 12s. There are some jems in the 5.9-10 range on the upper tier however. On the right butt is a series of 5.12s, which are easily accessible from the top of a pair of stellar, varied, and long 5.10s (Paper and Plastic).

Views of pikes peak and the surrounding wilderness abound from this crag, and the approach is safe for dogs and kids, save one 8 foot section requiring a helping hand. The aspen grove behind the crag offers much adventuring for the little ones, and trails to nearby formations.

There is now a small pullout with enough room for about 3 cars directly at the Trailhead. There is also a white and brown "P" sign. Jul 16, 2012

Beautiful views, great location, and a short hike. Choss pile of rock. Jun 19, 2018
Please note that there is a huge new parking lot just around the corner past campsite #36. No need to exceed the four car capacity of this spot. Just drive around the corner, and look to your left. Sep 29, 2018
