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!
Find this by parking at the Helen Hunt Falls, hike up the established trail (~0.5 mi) above the falls, past & above Silver Cascade, and before the bridge, head up & right through the trees to the slab. Find this line located separately from the other bolted lines on the far-left side of the crag where the terrain/dirt starts to become angled up & left.
Boulder up left of the first bolt on flakes with the crux move before the 1st bolt. Clip & head up. Clip 3-4 widely spaced bolts to an overlap/huge flake. Carefully pull up on the left edge of the huge flake & head to the top. There are 2 bolts at the top without rappel paraphenalia, 130 feet. Walkoff to the left.
Hopefully that huge flake is stable.
