Description 

Mostly sport climbs but also a few nice gear routes. The climbing here is mainly 5.10b-12c with some excellent sustained routes and also some routes in the woods further right, which offer nice climbing on short shaded walls.

Getting There 

From the Bank campground, follow the road to a point where you can spot a now obvious trail on the left (approx 1/2 mile from campground ?), leading up to the cliff. The trail switchbacks to the base of the climbing and this will tell you if you are in the right area, by the trail you are on. Upon arriving atop the trail you will be by a block separating 3 routes to the left and others right.

Barbecueing Traditions 5.12- 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a  CO : Shelf Road : Cactus Rose Cliff
This is an excellent and sequential route. It features steep crimpin' and sharp pocket pullin' (big surprise). The technical crux is around the third clip, crimping on a gnarly, slippery sidepull. It is somewhat reachy. It eases off a little bit after that, with a shake out rest followed by another sting-in-the-tail set of thin balance moves getting to the intimidating last clip (I used a looong sling for this one). Finish with jugs to the anchors.The guidebook calls this 12a/b, but I would lean...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Anybody have any info on the route on the far right (third line) of the Skinheads Wall?

It starts in some dirty ledgy stuff and climbs into some pretty cool and sharp pockets towards the top.
