BETA PHOTO: The south face of Conception.


Conception appears to be a more newly hatched block. It sits in a group of boulders that looks to be a result of a recent rockfall. The rock quality is quite good, and the landing are as well. Any ascent requires a short downclimb or hop down.

Getting There 

From the parking area, cross CO Highway 141 to the east, then head uphill moving slightly the southeast. Reference the page map for the exact location.

From there, throw a heel on, cross over with the right hand to a sloper-pinch using the arete, bump the left hand past the right to a left hand pinch, bring the heel along, pull to a right hand sloper, hit the lip, and mantle on top....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
