Description

Looking to get away from the crowds that tend to populate Amusement Wall and the left side of Clear Creek Crag? Check out the Trash Shoot Area! There is a little bit for everyone, and a great mix of classic and newer routes. Make sure to bring a stick clip as a lot of the routes are severely undercut at the start (especially routes on the right side of the area), but you'll enjoy the variety of climbs here. This area faces west and gets nice sun in the afternoon. 

Getting There

Travel west from Mike's Wall along the main path approximately 200 feet and look for a trail heading down a small hill on the left side of the railroad trail. After walking down the hill, you'll see another trail on the right that will lead you through the low lands of the Western Wetlands. You'll pass Treasure Island boulder, then Tinkerbell, and about 50 feet later see a trail for the Trash Shoot Area on the left that takes you back up towards the cliff line. Beware of loose rocks towards the top of the trail (this will be improved in the future).
