Description 

Ranging from 30-50 feet, this is one of the taller cliffs in Picket Wire Canyon. There is potential for plenty of sport development along with some additional trad routes. Most of the cracks will need some cleaning but will yield high quality climbing.

Getting There 

From the parking area listed (N37.6435, W103.5838), hike south down a closed road to the rim. Search right (west) for a good 4th class weakness that provides access to the bottom of the canyon. Intercept the Picket Wire Canyon trail, and hike south then southwest for 0.8 mile to the Dinosaur Track Trail junction. Instead of going to the dino tracks, hike uphill to the base of the cliff to the north.

Too bad the finger crack isn't longer! Start up a 5.4 slab to a stance at the base of an off finger crack. Climb up the crack for 12 feet to the rim. Hopefully you're finger locks are dialed. Belay off wide gear....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
