Description 

This is on the east side of the park. It includes Corridor Wall and Titanic Boulder.

Quite a few problems ranging from slab to major-overhang are in this area. The main “Corridor” holds multiple problems ranging from beginner to V3+ on perfect flat-landings. It is a great place to try different dynos and other variations. The other boulders just north of The Corridor hold several harder problems in a few caves with most of them having top-outs. On a hot day, the main Corridor area is filled with sun until the afternoon, but the caves stay shady.

Getting There 

Enter via the East Entrance (also known as the South Entrance), the one with the visitor center.

Park at the Canyon Point parking lot (the largest one with the facilities present. You can take the Inner Canyon Trail or the Lake Gulch Trail, both are roughly the same distance/time.

Inner Canyon Trail: once at the bottom of the creek, hike for ~10 minutes. You will come to an large open area where there are a series of stairs and bridges. To your left will be the Creekside Boulders, a popular warm-up spot.

At the top of the first set of stairs (they head left and go down towards the river) is a boulder with a trail heading towards the right and uphill. Follow this trail to a cliff-face, then head along the cliff-face to the right, climb-up a 3 foot ledge, and you will enter the main Corridor area.

Get here by going to the South entrance (also known as the East entrance). Park in the main huge parking lot and follow trails down to the "Inner Canyon" trail. Walk for just over 10 minutes.

Dyno V1 5  Colorado : Denver South : ... : Corridor Wall
This is located on the eastside of the corridor that is still attached. Many possibilities are on this wall adding some fun and variation. This particular problem starts with small crimps with a dyno move to a ledge 2/3's the way up the wall. Once you hit that, it is a straightforward topout. Also, note most top-outs are pretty polished and seem to always lack that "desired" jug....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
