Description

This is an entry to help with keeping things clearer.

This crag is just a couple tenths of a mile to the east of Piz Badille on CO 72.

It has at least one route.

Getting There

This is just a couple tenths of a mile to the east of Piz Badille on CO 72. From the pulloff, cross the wooden bridge and go up the talus slope to base of low angle, gray rock.

From a big pullout about a quarter or half mile downstream from Piz Badille, cross an old bridge that is posted, or cross the creek upstream. Go straight up the talus slope, passing a 3rd-class slab, to the crag. I first climbed on this PC in 1979 or '80.

This rock is east of Piz Badille and higher. We could call it Piz Cengalo, to continue a theme of vague resemblances to famous peaks in the Alps of Bregaglia. People perusing MP's list of rocks in the St Vrain would find it next to PB, which would be efficient.

From a big pullout about a quarter or half mile downstream from Piz Badile, cross an old bridge, which is posted, or cross the creek upstream. Go straight up the talus slope, passing a 3rd-class slab, to the crag. I first climbed on this PC in 1979 or '80.

BTW, on June 15, 1979, I led Steve Sarns up the obvious west-facing chimney/crack on another rock, which is not much farther downstream and not much above the stream (5.7?). The lower part of the chimney overhangs. Sep 24, 2012
