Access Issue: Reopened after flood damage!
Per Stewart M. Green: the North Cheyenne Canyon was reopened after the floods of 2015.
Per Stewart M. Green: ATTENTION!! The Colorado Springs Parks Department has CLOSED ALL CITY PARKS, including Garden of the Gods, Red Rock Canyon Open Space, and North Cheyenne Canon, to rock climbing for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend.
This is due to record rainfall totals in western Colorado Springs which as caused severe trail and parking lot damage, saturated the sandstone cliffs, and is causing parts of cliffs to break off.
The parks will be re-evaluated on Monday to determine how the closure will last.
Please respect the closures and take care of our precious climbing areas!
Sizzle is a technical route that combines hard moves across a slab followed by a bulge and groove that ends with a run out slab for a finish. It starts up and left from the base of the small, dirty looking pool. It can comfortably be done as one pitch with a 200 foot rope.
Scramble up and to the left along the edges of a slab. At the top of the slab, locate two side by side bolt hangers on a bulging headwall. Clip the first bolt and mount the slab. Clip the second bolt on the left and un-clip the first bolt. Desperately work left and up to the third bolt. Climb up into an undercling and over the bulge into a left facing groove. Climb up the groove to the last bolt. Make a move back to the right and mount a right leaning ramp that finishes at the anchors. The anchors are hidden to the right about 20 feet away from the last bolt. Enjoy.
Use the standard rack of quickdraws and a 200 foot rope.
