Description 

Diehard Cliff is a nice spot to get away from the sport crowds at The Pass. If the waterfall is flowing from snowmelt, it can be buggy in early summer. This nice cliff has old school trad and mixed climbs in the 5.7 to 10b range. The gear here can be difficult.

Getting There 

This is located up and behind Pass Walls. From bottom of Pass Walls, walk down the road 50 feet, and hike up talus and to the right. Once on top, skirt the wall under a log to the climbs. It is located about 200 yards from the highway.

Featured Route For Diehard Cliff

Obtuse Corner 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c PG13  Colorado : Independence Pass : Diehard Cliff
Obtuse Corner is an old school 5.8 trad route. Follow the diagonal crack placing small cams. Stand up to the eyebrow, and slot a #0.3 or similar cam. Move past this crux, and try to get a tricam, or run it out to the good #0.5 and 1 at the next stance. Lieback up to a long reach and a dicey smear to the anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
