Description 

Escondido Circle is the western boundary of the Riggs' Hill area. It offers a few good problems on surprisingly solid stone.

This area is not well known to me and I apologize for misrepresenting anything. If there is more information you would like inserted into this area, or corrected information, let me know and I'll be happy to change it. I'll also get more pictures of the area as I return to Riggs in the following weeks and months ahead.

Getting There 

Drive past the main parking area of Rigg's Hill approximately 1/4 mile and turn right on Escondido Circle. The boulders are immediately on the right side, with a small parking area on the left.

Start with your right hand on a small, sidepull crimp and your left hand on the positive ledge. Make a big dead point move to a SMALL crimp, and then match on a smaller crimp beside it. From there, get your left leg out from under the roof (which is 2 feet above the ground), and grab a fairly positive crimp with the left hand. Get your feet up, and top out using crimp rails and positive feet. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
