Description

This is the crown jewel of the Grandpa's Bridge area. This intimidating dome was the inspiration to develop the entire area. This wall gets shade in the morning and sun in the afternoon. The rock is average for the most part, but the steepness, position and quality of movement make up for that.

Getting There

When the river is low or iced over, it is best to park on CO 14 in direct view of the wall. Cross the river, and walk up the leftside of the hill below the wall. A short 20 foot rappel on a fixed line gets you to the belay ledge.

When the water is high, park at the big pullout near the bridge, and walk along the river until you are below the wall. When the river is peaking, you may have a 2-3 week window where even wading along the river is impossible.

Descent: when you're done for the day, it is best to do a 30m rappel straight down the ledgy/slabby face using the 2-bolt anchor off the ledge.
