Rough Neck Wall

Colorado > S Platte > Staunton SP > Sawmill Crags
Access Issue: Falcon Closures Details

Description

This crag sits high above the Staunton Rocks area. From afar, it looks similar to turkey tail, but unfortunately upon closer inspection the wall isn't as steep. Luckily it still has some cool roofs littered with incipient crack systems and mostly good rock.

Getting There

From the trailhead, take the Staunton Ranch Trail for approximately 1.5 miles until you come to a junction with the Old Mill Trail. Turn right here and follow this trail for 0.9 miles. Once at the old, dilapidated mill, follow the trail around the mill until there is another trail junction. Turn left and follow the Borderline trail for roughly 100 yards. When the trail turns left, continue straight up and find your way up the hill to the obvious cliff above.
