This wall is just above the Five and Dime Boulders. There are probably less than ten routes on the entire wall, but some are quite fun. There are mostly TRs and a few can be done trad-style. Most routes are fairly short. There is good sun in the morning until the late afternoon. I've noticed barbed wire very close to the top of the wall along the rim. I assume it is some sort of park boundary. So be careful.

Getting There 

This wall can be reached by parking at Homestead Trail at the north end of the park. The wall can be seen above the Five and Dime Boulders to the west. Hike up the hill to the base of the wall (west rim).

This route is just left of Skin Flint. It reaches the same ledge about a third of the way up as Skin Flint (only a few feet over to the left). The line takes a left-leaning, left-facing edge through the crux and reaches some easy face climbing to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

Hanson's Guidebook states that this wall is actually north of the state park boundary, although climbing here has never been a problem. I try to keep a low profile and don't trash the place so there won't be any problems in the future.
