Great fun up high.


This is quite the collection of small, granite boulders and crags that make up the high point of The Top of the World Area. From a distance, these look like tiny boulders, but up close they are a bit more to climb. Nonetheless, none of the routes are more than 2 pitches in length. In the old days, you could camp here and play all day long. It has a fair number of higher quality, one pitch routes...albeit a bit spread out.

Getting There 

This area lies east of Slabbo and the Cracked Wall. It is on a decent-sized hillside. Paths/trails seem to stutter around here, leaving you feeling like you're exploring.

Climbing Season

For the Buffalo Creek area.

The Trophy (on The Aerie) 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  CO : South Platte : ... : The Aerie
The crux comes right off the ground trying to navigate some offwidth step-around move. After that, it's a pleasant 5.10 crack for well over 100'. A souvenir awaits at the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
