Description

Punishment Wall hosts a few quality climbs. The rock is mostly good, but watch out for typical Front Range loose rock and choss. Most listed routes have bolt anchors. There's an easy walkoff to the right at the South end of the wall.

This crag was first formally developed by Gabe Hagan (‘13), Hayden Richards (‘13), and Austin Cooner (‘15) in Spring of 2012.

Getting There

This is the first wall up the Eagle's Peak trail. It's off the trail to your left at an obvious break in the trees that provides a clear view of the wall. Right now there's not too much of a path up there, but it's pretty straightfoward to get up. Once you reach the cliff, the climbs are around the corner to the right.

Per Finn Westenfelder: follow the Eagle's Peak trail for approximately 0.4 miles (from the trailhead), and turn to the South at GPS coordinates 39.00463, -104.91092. The start of the approach trail crosses the dry creekbed. Follow the trail that goes to the Southeast (the trail going Southwest is for Exemplar Tower). Both trails are marked with cairns.

A .gpx route is also posted with the exact trail.
