A short cliff band that has several excellent problems along its face. This area offers a little better seclusion then the Egg Boulders and has several quality problems that range from V0 to V6-ish.

Getting There 

Harder to locate then the Egg Boulders, however not too much bushwhacking is needed. Park in the first parking lot (as you come from the east side or CO Hwy 73). The trail starts at the same trailhead as Hidden Fawn, however take the left/center trail called “Sisters Trail” and once you come to the fork take the right trail towards the sisters (which are the tall rock formations). You will follow this trail most of the way to another fork that heads left (up to the sisters) or continues right (towards Dedisse Trail), however about 100 yards short of this junction you will veer off left up the hill and off of the trail. The area you head-up is just left of a large slab area up a ravine; the cliff band is about 25 yards short of the crest of the hill.

This is the best line at The Energy Wall. It is steep, powerful, technical, dynamic and beautiful. It's also quite tall. Climb the orange-colored wall right of a pronounced crack located next to a pine tree.S.D.S. with your hands in a nice in-cut jug. Make sure your hands are placed in the correct order before starting out or you are sure to have victory stolen from you.When ready, aggressively bump up to a small, right hand crimp with a pinky catch then quickly make a long toss (again with ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
