Description

This is an organizational entry to allow parent - child matches in the database.

This cliff has 2 tiers.

There are a number of climbs here, both trad and sport.

It is a great mid-summer crag. If you are willing to suffer some post holing and a little wetness, you can access this crag in early spring as it is accessed below the Independence Pass closure gate.

There is bullet granite with a great mixture of routes.

Getting There

From Difficult Campground day use parking (3.6 miles east of Aspen), take Difficult Creek Trail (TR 2196) over the bridge crossing the Roaring Fork River. Take the faint right fork in the trail after about 40 yards. The trail wanders west for a couple hundred yards where it crosses Difficult Creek (on a big fallen tree). Follow more obvious trail up to the base of the cliffs. The upper section of routes is accessed by some mad scrambling and fixed rope climbing.
