Unicorn Valley

Colorado > S Platte > Devil's Head
Access Issue: Raptor Closures Details

Description

Unicorn Valley has 2 trad routes and 5 bolted sport climbs. All the climbs here are 5.9 or under. 6 of the climbs are about 40-50 feet tall. This area is in the shade all morning long and has nice tree shade even in the afternoon.

Getting There

Take the main fire tower trail a few hundred yards to the fence just before the little bridge, go around the round pole fence on the right. Continue up this trail a few hundred yards, past the switchback, to the intersection. Take the left (this is the old fire tower trail), right takes you to the lower west side (training ground, jungle and chicken head ranch). I counted 450 steps from the junction until the crag is on your left. There's a big cairn on the left.
