Description

This is a Summer area North of Fort Collins by ~40 minutes. It is a multi-pitch, granite cliff with single pitch and multi-pitch sport and trad and a ton of potential. Currently it is under development. It is beautiful and wild. This faces WEST! It gets morning shade and is cold in the summer, and then you fry past 1p unless it is cloudy. Bring alpine layers. It is best to climb out. We will add escape route(s) soon. A walk out is possible, follow cairns to the North along cliff base meandering up and down talus and cliff. This is a safe but exposed 1 hour hike out. It is 20 minutes out from top of the Roost.

The road is open May 1st until Sept. 1st. A 4WD vehicle is helpful. My Subaru makes it.

Current must dos:

5.12a**** - Barnyard Bouncehouse, 1p sport.
5.12c**** - The Rooster Moans, 1p sport.
5.13a***** - Valhalla, 3 pitch sport: 11a, 13a, 12b.... AMAZING! 23 bolts.
5.11c**** - Lightning in a Bottle, 1p sport.

Developers: Noah Kaufman, Ian Dory, & Ryan Nelson.

Getting There

Follow the loop dirt road left/west on Googlemaps from Cherokee Park Road until you get close to the Turkey Roost. Park in a scenic meadow which is a horse camp and fishing trail access (great camping here.) Do a 20 minute hike down a gentle saddle and up into Turkey Roost Saddle via cairns. Various rap anchors out a talus point are tricky to find. Mountain skills and mindset are a must. A 70 meter rope is necessary. Rappel in via Valahalla or another route, or take a long (3rd class, 1 hour) technical hike around. Please leave development buckets and gear alone. Helmets are recommended, and be mindful of rock-fall.

I been out here, kinda made my own adventure on some of the lower angle, east-facing side. Wondering if anyone has any of the information for established crack or trad climbs on the west side? Either single pitch or to the top? Jan 1, 2017
