Beginner’s Burden

Colorado > Canon City > Shelf Rd > Valhalla

Description

Beginner's Burden is a small crag close to the road that provides some short easier climbs for those looking for low commitment climbing.

Getting There

Just after the Raven’s Roost comes into view, look for this little crag on the right. Use the pullout directly below, and walk about 75 feet up a ramp to the base.
