Description

This area is a very secluded sheer face that faces Southeast just near the top of Palisade Mountain. Anyone who is a climber can't help but stare at Palisade Mountain as they drive West toward Estes Park in the Big Thompson Canyon. This wall caught my attention back in 1999, as I'm sure it has many others making the same journey. It sits high on the left hand summit skyline and is the sheerest, cleanest looking wall on the entire mountain. From the road below, you can make out the splitter crack running up its middle, and for all of you who are putting the pieces together reading this...that crack is every bit as good as it looks!!

Getting There

Approach One: Hike to the Horse Head and wrap Northeast around its Eastern side along a bench that will lead you to the base of the wall with a short scramble up 2nd class at its end. "Note" when hiking along the bench, if you stay along the Eastern shoulder, the approach will be much easier.

Approach 2: Climb the Horse Head to its summit for a warmup, scramble off the back towards the Northeast and hike to through the saddle to the base of the wall.
