BETA PHOTO: The rock.
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.

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.

Stem up and step left past the first bolt to a ledge. Step left to a shallow corner. The right of the two corners is the route Heavy Cipherin'. Clip the 2nd bolt, and make the committing crux moves with almost certain ledgefall potential. The relief of clipping the third bolt will mentally prepare you for one more tricky move. Cruise up easier rock to an overhanging bulge that leads to the anchor....[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.
