Description 

Chuck Norris Wall is characterized by steep, crystalline granite with plenty of single pitch pebble pinching. Most of the routes are in the 5.10-5.12 range, though there are a handful of moderates. The sport routes are bolted generously, so it's a good place to try a new grade and make it to work the next morning. Some of the trad lines are flared; offsets are useful.

This is east-facing. The crag gets morning sun and afternoon shade. The area is close to others so swinging around to find the best shade works out well.

Getting There 

A 45 minute/1.6 mile approach and afternoon storms keep the crowds away.

Start at the popular Devil's Head Fire Lookout trailhead. Hike on the trail for about 10 minutes, crossing a creek and starting up the first switchback until seeing a picnic table on right. The main trail cuts south.

Turn left on a decent social trail with some blowdown. Follow this for about 20 minutes with a bit of up and down until reaching a fourway social trail junction at a small saddle after a log bridge.

Right goes to Morning Glory Wall. A hard left goes between mini-towers and swings south and up a gully to the Chuck Norris Wall. There are raspberries here.

Collagen Crack 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a  Colorado : South Platte : ... : Chuck Norris Wall
Collagen Crack is a good looking, varied crack with a couple small steps left in the center of the wall. There are plenty of hand jams and face features to pull though. You can get decent rests for gear, though the gear can be a bit tricky....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
