Description

If you enjoy hard bouldery sport routes, this place is for you. Easy access, decent concentration and a significant lack of pump make this a bouldering/sport climbers dream. All though the routes lack any sort of typical sport endurance, the grades are not "easy" and require a significant source of power.

The Beach is a nice Fall/Winter/Spring area. During the summer months the river is generally too high to get across. Most of the cliff receives sun until mid-morning then shade the rest of the day.

Getting There

The Beach is located in the West End of the Narrows, Poudre Canyon, Co. Park at the same pull-out as for Snake Eyes wall and walk upstream until the crag comes into view. Cross the river right in front of the crag.
