This area is undoubtedly some of the best, easy access (20 minute hike), multi-pitch sport climbing in Colorado, including Rifle, Shelf or Eldo.

Thanks to hard work of Richard and Mark, what great lines up this excellent granite. Every climb has its own personality, and they are all challenging. Diana and I were lucky to squeeze Miner's Delight in before the snowstorm and winter. We found the ratings easier than on "Nearer to Thee", probably due to the style. The 3rd pitch on nearer to thee is a true 5.11c thin slab. Miner's is more of a jug haul, with perfect holds where you need them.
