Conan's Corridor Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: The steep 100' walls of Conan's Corridor.
While the Jumbo Rocks area in general does not yield much in the way of good climbing, Conan's Corridor is the exception to the rule. There are at least 8 routes on the main (east) face, 5 of which are worthy of multiple stars. Must-do's include Colorado Crack
(5.8), and Spiderman
Gets morning sun.
From the intersection of the main road and Jumbo Rocks Campground, hike approximately 1/4 mile north, traveling over some slabby terrain, through some brambles, and finally through a slot (Conan's Corridor) which opens up into a 100' east-facing wall with several excellent cracks. Total approach time - 5 minutes if you don't get lost. The Corridor Face goes into shade in the early afternoon.

It's fairly easy to get to the rap anchors above Boulderado (aka California Face) if no one is on it and you don't want to walk off. Approach the furthest boulder climber's right from climber's right. You get good heel-toe jams and can shimmy along the face for ~10' until you can clip into the rings. It feels more secure if you have shorter legs, as your butt isn't so close to the edge of the wall.
