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.

To be edited in.

A second pitch may be added in the future. Above the anchors, the wall goes quite blank - the potential second pitch here will be sick thin. The route starts off slightly overhanging on good rock with big holds.The first clip is a little spooky but reasonable - bring a stick clip if you want to avoid being sca...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
