Access Issue: Raptor Closures Details

Description

The Waffle House is located in the upper West Valley just below the fire tower. Many of the routes were developed for my young daughter and friends new to outdoor climbing.

Most of the routes are under 5.9, but some harder routes can be found, giving the crag a wide range in climbing difficulty. The length of the routes range from 65-90 feet and is a great place for a newer leader. Despite most of the sport climbing found at Devil's Head, there are even some quality beginner trad lines. The climbing here has a variety of climbing styles from crack, chickenheads, technical face, and some slab.

Due to the aspect and features of the crag, anyone can find sun or shade at anytime of the day which makes it an ideal crag for both hot and cold days. With that in mind, the crag does fully become shaded in the late afternoon.

Getting There

Take the Fire Tower Trail to the cabin just below the final set of stairs to the fire tower. Go south on a well-established trail to the end of a grassy meadow. Cut right at the end of the meadow, and pick up a climber's trail. Descend downhill for 100 yards to a cliff on the right – welcome to the Waffle House (N39.2595, W105.1025). Expect a ~35 minute hike.
