Frisky Cliff Rock Climbing
Taylor Roy redpoints Rumors.
This cliff offers four sport climbs and one old Dan Hare gear route. Morning/early afternoon shade gives good sending temps to these 5.13- and up sport routes. Probably too cold in winter so the best time to climb here is spring, summer, or fall.
L->R these may be:
A1. Double Impact
, 13, alternate start, 1p, 60', bolts.
A2. Van Damage
, 13-, 1p, 45', bolts.
B. The Orb
, 13-, 1p, 40', bolts.
C. Con Gaz
, 13, 1p, 60', bolts.
, 13-, 1p, 60', bolts.
D2. Sin Gaz
, 12, 1p, 60', bolts.
E. Last Tango, 10, 1p, gear.
F. Frisky, 10-, 1p, gear.
G. The Borg
, 13, 1p, 70', bolts.
H. Rumors of Glory
, 13, 1p, bolts.
I always park at "Castle Rock" (10-11 miles up the canyon). An alternative is to park at the chipped park,...er excuse me the Sport Park. Either way it's probably best to warm up at either crag. To approach the crag from the Castle, cross the little bridge just downriver from Country Club Crack. Once across follow a faint trail up past the cliff on your left (the Broken Cliff, I believe) to a flat aqueduct trail. Head west around the corner for about .5 miles. A pleasent hike with great views of the Castle. You will also pass the "Mountain Rose" cliff once on the aqueduct trail. Don't confuse these slabs with the Frisky Cliff routes. Steep bolted routes on your left is the big indication that you have reached your destination.

This was the farthest left route on the cliff. Hike up a dead end gully-chasm to reach the route. It has very powerful climbing up the gently overhanging wall with surprisingly bad grips. The holds do get better after the third bolt and on the dog does not seem that hard (compared to the climbing below), but you do carry the pump to the anchors. A hold broke in the middle of the crux solidifying the grade, but the route has since been redpointed.... Oh and don't worry you won't hit the wall behi...[more] Browse More Classics in Colorado
