So, we'll sketch it in...and fill it in later.
This area has a number of crags at a higher altitude, thus many will be difficult to climb during the colder months.
Nearby crags in the area include: Bob's Rock near Buena Vista, Camp Hale (closer to Redcliff), Cecilville Slab, Dump Wall, Finback, Gilman, Granite area, Homestake Reservervoir (closer to Redcliff), Klettergarden (closer to Redcliff), Monitor Rock (in the Independence Pass section), Pyramid, Sawatch, and Weston.
The demarcations for these areas are a bit blurry, since Independence Pass, Vail, and Eagle are "relatively" close. We have to draw the lines somewhere.
As a Leadville climber notes, the immediate Leadville area has a slight dearth of noteworthy climbing crags which may explain its relative lack of a climbing community.
