Private Property Details
This climbing area is on private property.
DescriptionThis is one of my favorite 5.7s in Colorado. It's long (160 feet), takes good pro, and clean rock the entire way. The route is very easily found right where the trail from the road first meets the rock at a large flat opening. It's the obvious dihedral that continues all the way to the top. There is a second pitch.
The first fifty feet is only an easy warmup, then the real fun begins at a small ledge. Follow the perfect crack up past some great hand jams and into a lieback finish at the top. Easiest way down is with two 50m ropes on rappel.
The 2nd pitch is not recommended, due to the rock and private land issues.
