Looking at Chasm View from Broadway.

Seasonal Closures MORE INFO >>>


This is one of the more sunny walls of Long's Peak and thus the rock season is longer. It is relatively short, so the commitment level is reduced; however, don't underestimate the wall, as folks have been benighted here crashing in on folks camped in the Boulder Field. It sports nearly 20 routes that are 4-7 pitches in length. In early season, there can be snow at the base of this wall.

Some of the more popular routes include: Babies R Us, 5.12a; Royal Flush, 5.11c; Red Wall, 5.10a, Middle Path, 5.11b; Directissima, 5.10a; & Martha, M3.

Descent is probably easiest along the Camel, class 3 to the R.

Getting There 

Most approach this area from Long's Area trailhead off CO Hwy 7. Hike up to Chasm Lake, 4.5 mi. Ascend scree/boulders to the base of this wall up & right past Chasm Lake.

A great three pitch on Chasm View Wall, NOT on the Diamond. A good training route for the more committing lines of the Diamond, takes significantly less time to approach and descend (depending on descent taken). Approach Mills Glacier but instead of climbing the North Chimney to Broadway continue North on the glacier. Scramble up easy grassy ledges to beneath the middle of Chasm View Wall. Continue up and right to the bottom of an obvious grassy ledge beneath the right facing dihedral. P1: ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

Anyone climb the Invisible Wall free? I'd be excited to hear about the 11+ R pitch, specifically where that R is, and any other beta from someone who has climbed it.
