Colder than hell is the third crack from the left,...

Raptor Closures MORE INFO >>>


This is the center crack up Campground Rock. A short scramble/chimney is required to reach the base of the route.

The route starts with a wide hands crack which slowly transitions into off-width near the top. After a ledge 3/4 of the way up the route, two obnoxious bushes will have to be passed.

Wear pants, long sleeves, and tape gloves.


This crag is located west of the Devil's Head Fire Tower Trail parking lot, NOT the parking lot for the campground.

The base of the climb is located at 39.269390, -105.105573.


Double BD #2-4 and a single #5. Ideally, triple #4s and doubles #5s would sew it up.

Small finger-sized gear is needed for the anchor (we used a #0.3, 0.4. and 0.5).

Per Mike Carrington: there are anchors at the top now.

The bushes are gone now, and there are anchors at the top.
