Description

This is the largest chunk of rock in the canyon. This wall is very obvious if one takes the drive towards Gateway. In KC Baum's book of the area, the only documented route up the discontinuous 1300' face is his route Ancient Wisdom. The formations offers mostly good rock with the usual bands and streaks of poor quality rock. As mentioned in the guide, the cracks do tend to flare quite often and seam out. There is enough rock here to keep you busy for a long time.

The Unaweep Seep is an amazing ecosystem nestled in Unaweep. Please tread lightly!

Getting There

It is 23.5 miles west of Divide Road. Park as for the Unaweep Seep parking. Walk further west to where the lush vegetation decreases and crossing the river is more manageable.

If hiking for the tallest section of the cliff, follow the main drainage that will take you parallel to the face. Then cut towards the face up the steep slope. The approach further west is less distance, but it is a difficult scree slope that is very steep.
