Description 

This little, out-of-the-way crag is great for an all day excursion (including drive time) for those trad hungry climbers who don't need a lot to choose from. A short hike downhill with a little bushwacking will get you there. The South Face is very course (Veadawoo'esque) with about five or so established crack climbs.

Getting There 

From Denver, take US Hwy 85 (Santa Fe South). From Castle Rock, take US Hwy 85 North to Sedalia. Go West on CO 67 till you get to Rampart Range Road. Then go South for approximately four (4) miles [8.7 miles], keeping an eye out for the Cabin Ridge Picnic Ground sign on the right. Park at the end and walk directly West on the trail to the back side of the crag. Go around to the left for the easiest access.

Squeeze chimney all the way. Climb all the way into the wide crack at the bottom to the back of the crack where you start to head up. Work your way up the chimney to get first piece of pro way in the back of the crack. I felt the crux of this pitch was getting out of the top where the back of the crack is broken rock providing only marginal protection and having to work your way toward the front of the crack if you are larger to exit. The second pitch is more squeeze chimney. Protection is found...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
