Description

Does overhanging, always shady, harder climbing exists in Summit County? Yes, surprisingly it actually does. Cache Wall is located 1.4 miles from Frisco and features some pretty fun stuff in the harder range. The wall is very overhanging which is something unique and different for the county. Although it is fairly short at about 40 feet, it packs a punch, and you won't feel cheated. The climbing is typically beta intensive which creates for tricky on-sights or great summer projects, and Cache's close proximity to Frisco makes it a good after-work crag. There are enough routes to provide for a full days worth of climbing for almost any climber.

Cache Wall is a great new Summit County addition that I encourage people to check out. I warn you, however, that since it is a new crag, PLEASE WEAR HELMETS as the routes are still cleaning up. Do the same for dogs. There is not a large space at the bottom of the crag for dogs to hangout, so while it is cleaning up, it might be best to leave the pooch at home.

This is a new crag, therefore grades are subjective. As time goes on, the grades will settle into place and become more solidified. We are open to feedback on the the routes, so please leave comments on what you think.

Bring a stick clip as many of the routes have hard starts and are nice to have stick clipped.

This wall was established in dedication of a good friend Quincy Brave Conway, who passed away August 4, 2016 at the age of 17. As an avid climber, he would have loved to see the development of Cache and surly crushed its hardest routes with ease. He will always be remembered by those who knew him and keep us inspired to excel in the steep.

Quincy Brave Conway, December 20, 1998 - August 4, 2016.

Getting There

From Frisco's Main Street I-70 on ramp, drive West 1.3 miles, you will pass White Cliff, until I-70 begins to bend to the left. There is a large, grassy pullout right before the bend. Park here. Locate the obvious trail leading up into the woods, and switchback until you reach the base of the wall. The first route you come to is Undertow, 5.11b. The hike is about 5-10 minutes.
