Getting There 

From Broadway, take a left at South Broadway and follow that until it begins to parallel the National Monument cliff band. There is a pulloff on the left and a hiking trail that crosses the drainage and goes up the right side of drainage. At the top, you can tie into the Monument trail and get to Tiara Rado. Keep walking straight to access the climbs.


A small cul-de-sac of a canyon that is easily accessed from the Gold Star Parking area for hikers. Only a few routes are up here and little is known about the first ascentionists.
