Poor Man's Wingate T 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a

Description

This is the type locality of the Lyons Sandstone, which is the geological equivalent of the Wingate. The Lyons Sandstone also composes the Rotwand Wall in Eldo and North Gateway, South Gateway and Kindergarten in the Garden of the Gods. At Steamboat Mountain, the rock more closely resembles the sandy Wingate.

Getting There

This is above and east of US Hwy 36, just northwest of Lyons.

Has anyone been up to Steamboat Mountain recently or know whether it is still accessible? I'd love to check it out but am having trouble finding a legal way in. Jan 26, 2015
