Angle Iron Slabs Rock Climbing
Why would anyone want to go to this rock? I dont know
but heres a description. The rock sits just to the NE of the parking lot for the Cynical Pinnacle, and the dome. Its right off the road, and on a few of the climbs you pretty much have to stand on the road to belay. The climbs are all pretty mediocre and probably best to be done as top ropes (which are very convenient to set up) as the bolts on the slab routes are typical old South Platte death traps. All in all the climbs on this rock are harder then they look, and if your looking to maybe hang out by the river, drink a few beers, BBQ, and play around on the rock this might be a worthwhile area.
Right next to the parking lot for the Dome and Cynical Pinnacle.

There are five routes listed in Hubbel's guide in the same area as this climb, all are variations and end up in the same place after the first ten to twenty feet of climbing. Its best to set up a top rope on this climb and just do all the variations dow...[more] Browse More Classics in Colorado
