Way at the top of Ptarmigan Creek sits Hurricane Wall. This wall hosts some of the steepest climbs on The Pass. Although it's a trek to get up here, the quality climbing and the great views up and down the valley are worth a day (or more?) away from the more popular crags.

Getting There 

Hike way up along and past Jungle Wall. After a small break in the cliff, the overhangs of Hurricane Wall come into sight.

You might feel spanked after hopping on this route! Start with a hard, crimpy boulder problem crux to reach the right-trending seam. Don't relax once you've gotten through this crux; continue on pumpy climbing and big moves following the seam until it's possible to move straight up through the bulge. Fight the pump to the anchors!Stick clipping the first bolt is highly recommended....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
