DescriptionThe climbing is on the south face of the huge, overhanging rock wall and on slabs lower down the hill. Be careful not to knock blocks down from routes higher on the hillside. The approach is loose.
The majority of climbing is trad, don't forget your tape gloves.
Do not try rapping from the top of the rock using a single rope, as you will not make it down. I learned this the hard way with my single 70m.
You can make it down easily using two ropes.
Getting ThereHead up to Horsetooth Rock as normal from the trailhead. Right before you get to the steps on the RIGHT SIDE, there is a trail that takes you to the NORTH for 100 yards and then proceed to flank around the tooth. Head down the hill for 300 feet, and you should see the intimidating, overhanging wall.
