A classic photo. Most people dont know where this is. It is located on Sylvan Dale ranch about a half mile from the entrance to the Big T. Jan 20, 2013

More info please! I've always wanted to do Spinal Tap. Jan 20, 2013
Location: If you drive west from Loveland 5 miles or so, you will come to County Road 29 (also Waterdale Drive). Turn north and follow the road for a mile or so untill you come to a bridge crossing the Big Thompson River. Find a place to park off the roadside. Walk west up the dirt road along the river. Spinal Tap is a green face across the river perhaps 75 yards west of the bridge. This climb is on Sylvan Dale Ranch property, a guest ranch, and permissions are required. They do have climbing available on ranch property, but it is guided. Contact Kyle Kingery on this website, he may be able to help. Feb 5, 2013
