This tiny crag has one route on it. It is distinct from Anarchy Wall in that there is a creek between it and Anarchy Wall. An old guidebook, Front Range Crags lists this as "Kool Krag"; however, the difference in spelling suggests it may have a different name, so we'll call it by its sole route's name...for now.

This crag typically does not get sunshine.

Getting There 

Park on the west side of Tunnel 3 (~5.2 miles) on the south side of the road. Cross the creek when it is safe (ideally in early spring or fall).

Climbing Season

This route is across the creek from Anarchy Wall. Hardly ever done, this route packs quite a punch for the 12c it's given in both guides. Start with a big or tricky move to good holds and move up to the third bolt on good holds, then head up the meat of the route with no opportunities for rest until you clip the chains. There's a bit of a runout between the third and fourth bolt (that's why I give it a PG-13, especially while hanging draws), so be attentive here....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
