Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionThis small area sits tucked in above I-70 on the north side of the road. Although you can still hear traffic zipping by, the wall is somewhat sheltered, and when topping out on most routes, you won't see a vehicle. With its southern exposure, the sun is with you througout the day. Thanks goes out to Griz as well my children Logan and Sarah Pappas for their tremendous patience.
Please keep in mind that most of these routes are new. I do my best to clean the routes and get rid of the loose rocks that I can, but some loose rock will be encountered. Test your holds and enjoy.

Getting ThereThe wall is just about a 1/2 mile west of the Officer's Gulch exit. At this time, you will see a sign (heading westbound I-70) for exit 195. It comes up quickly. Shortly after this sign, you will see a green metal pole with two reflectors on it. Make a hard right in a northern direction and look for a hand made sign. Once there, a path with cairns marks the way for the 10 minute approach. After a beautiful hike, the main wall stares you in the face while the lower wall is just to your left.
