Hole in the Wall Canyon Rock Climbing
FFA by Dr. Dan of MPO (Mo's Pissed Off), 12a/b, AK...
Hole in the Wall Canyon is a good hour's venture from Steamboat, but well worth it. This area has some sport and mixed routes, with many established and potential trad routes. Many climbs in this area are more than one pitch. There are also many good places to camp along the way.
Once on Seedhouse Road (see Seedhouse Crag driving directions for how to get to Seedhouse Rd.) drive 9 miles to NF-431, now known as trail 1189. Walk around the gate and follow the trail for 20-30 minutes until you see the huge climbing oasis on the left. After crossing a small log bridge stay left and jump onto a trail the that leads into the heart of the canyon.
Climbing Season For the North of Town area.

Pitches 1 and 2 are shared with Crow's Nest. When you reach the narrow ledge on P2, traverse left to the bolted belay. From the belay, climb up and left, aiming for the finger crack. Pull through the bulge and continue with good gear and one bolt to the horizontal break, traverse left, and continue up the obvious finger crack to the anchor, 5.10+.Please do not continue above the anchor, as there are many massive blocks above that would come down very easily....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
