This area gets easily overlooked as the Mecca area is just down the road; however, this area has a lot of the same high quality rock to be found if you're in the exploring mood. As the creek is right down the hill, there are also good opportunities for shady climbs on hot days. That said, crossing the creek here can be difficult, and getting to some of the boulders further back may be easier by crossing the creek at the Mecca area and following the path north.

Getting There 

From the US 50/CO Hwy 141 intersection, the pullout is 7.7 miles on the right side of the road. The Mecca pullout is about 1/4 mile up the road.
