Description

Situated on the west side of the Meadow Dome, the Tan Corridor offers steep vertical climbing with fun and interesting face holds. Most routes here range from 60 to 80 feet and are either sport or mixed lines. Most of the routes are shaded until 1:30pm in the summer, and with help from the trees, some of the routes are shaded most of the day.

Here is a topo of the main corridor area to help you figure where you are :
The Main Tan Corridor.

Getting There

Follow directions to the Meadow Dome. From the Meadow Dome, head west along the climber access trail. After a couple minutes of hiking, take the first spur off to the north (signed Tan Corridor/Dungeon/Marmot Tower), which leads to the Dungeon and Tan Corridor. Follow the right hand fork and make your way up a series of stone stairs into the Tan Corridor. Do not try to approach via the gulley above the Permission Wall.

Wow, another face climbing gem of the South Platte. It climbs like the Post Office at Thunder Ridge but bolted out the wazoo like Devil's Head. Hallelujah! May 29, 2018

There is a pretty fun bouldering traverse of the base of this cliff that checks in at about V5/V6 - long, pumpy, and technical. Sep 24, 2018
