Description

The Breaks is a fairly large cliff system with a goodly number of climbs, and potential for a significant number more than are published at present. The Right Breaks is well documented in the Laramie Range book, the left quite poorly. Good luck finding those climbs which are depicted only on a top-down aerial photo. I guess you approach by para-sail? But I digress...
The rock here is generally good and many of the better climbs are multi-pitch. The cliff faces primarily south, but as E/W and even a few N-facing aspects with good climbing on it. The rock is generally of excellent quality.
The approach to the Right breaks is easy to find, but somewhat obscured by lack of travel. To the left breaks... it tends to be more difficult due to wandering and windfall. Wear leather boots to keep the spear-grass and possible cactus mishap from invading your socks and shoes on the way up.

Getting There

From the Curtis Gulch Campground, head back a few yards West. On the North side of the road you will see a creek/colvert. To the West of that is a formal trail up the creekbed. This might be used to approach the Left Breaks with the least effort. To the right, a ridge/hogback rises up and N/NE to arrive at the Right Breaks. The occasional Cairn will assure you that indeed you keep crossing what was intended to be or what was once a trail. Pick your way up to the cliff, and don't drop anything, because you'll be lost in a slightly different way on the return back to your car.
