Getting There 

Now for the fun part - this is the most remote crag at Devil's Head, which some consider excessively remote in the first place. You have to hike all the way to the top and then back down the other side. Altogether, the hike is probably about 2 miles, and it's not flat. Consider yourself warned.

The best way to find it: hike to the firetower. Drop down into the near valley and attempt to follow cairns down hill. At the first junction in the cairns (which is a choice between digital tower or the crag ranch), take a left toward the Crag Ranch. At the next cairn junction, take a right toward HangDog Cafe. From Hangdog Cafe, follow the cairns down hill to the Shaft. From the Shaft, follow cairns uphill 200 yards to the Arena.

This is a great line on the west-facing monolith at the Arena!This line is fairly easy to spot. Looking at the west-facing wall (on the left as you come into the Arena), there is a slabby section that rises to a spot where the wall then gets steep. Just right of this slab is a section of wall that is steep all the way. Maximus follows this steep portion. It goes up a section of slightly overhanging red stone that is pretty obvious, about 80 feet long.Starts fun and leads up to a section with...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
