Description

This wall stays in the shade until early afternoon. Most of the climbing is in the 5.12 range with some exceptionally good 13s. Many of the routes have not seen much traffic, so expect some chossaneering. For more information, Wolverine Publishing has an excellent guide book for the entire Western Slope region.

Getting There

Take the New Castle Exit off I-70, and head north to a four way stop. Take a left on main street and drive though the downtown. After driving through town, take a right on 7th St. (this eventually will become Country Road 245), and drive for about 1.9 miles to a Y intersection. Take the right fork onto East Elk Creek Road for about 4.5 miles. For the last mile, you will follow a dirt road that ends at a large parking area on your left. Park here and enter through the right gate. Make sure not to take the left gate as it is private property.

After passing the gate, hike for about 0.4 miles to a large open area on your left not far past a cattle guard. From here, hike to the end of the open area, and look for a trail and small boulders (and possibly a cairn) on the right side of the road. Hike into the bushes and up the steep trail. The trail will leave you under the route Harvey Wallbanger, 13b.
