Description 

This is a small rock, high up, on the north side of the canyon. It presently contains 4 sport routes and is about 70' high. It is doubtful there will be a lot of people here. It is normally very sunny. The rock is the same granite found throughout the canyon.

A1. Dagnabitol, 10+ PG-13, 1p, bolts.
A2. Heavy Cipherin', 11-, 1p, bolts.
B. By Cracky, 11+?, 1p, 80', bolts.
C. Hankerin' in the Midsection, 10, 1p, 70', bolts.

Getting There 

You park in the same place as you do approaching the Security Risk crags and Happy Hour crag. Head up the hill on the same trail as for Security Risk. Go all the way up to Higher Security Risk, and then head towards the Solar Dome. Once at Solar Dome, head west on the old mining road below the Dome. The road turns into a small trail. You will see a old mine hole on the right where a faint trail heads down the hill side towards the crag. You can't see the crag from here, but a post in some rocks and a few cairns mark the way to the crag which is about 500 feet down the hill to the west of Hillbilly Rock 3, which is about 200 feet down the hill and a little to the west. It takes about 45 minutes to hike here.

This is the hardest route at the crag. D'Antonio calls this an 11b, but both my partner and I agree that it felt much harder. Two cruxes (third of the way up, and the very top) will keep you engaged. The first few bolts go up a large, distinctive corner with a featureless slab on the left. Start from a little rock outcropping (better to belay from here, than from the angling, sandy spot below), clip the first bolt, and get established in the corner using a cool, sharp side-pull in the crease of ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

Not that many will make the trek up here, but the crag is "easy" to approach from the bottom (from HB Rock 1) as well. There is a spot or two of class 3 but nothing too bad. Takes about 15 minutes. Scramble to the top of I Reckon from the left, top out on the slabs (class 3), and start traversing climber's left. Goal is to get over to the next big drainage to the West. HB 2 & 3 are on top of that gully.
