A small concentration of problems within Chatfield Hollow State Park. Gets morning and early afternoon sun.

There are a good selection of warm-up highballish climbs and a few classic lines.

Getting There 

Park in the main lot at Chatfield Hollow and follow the directions to the Broken Bridge area. After going over the broken bridge, cut right, passing the cliff band and skirting along the swampy area. Follow the stream and road(Rt. 80) for ~10 minutes. The rocks will be on your left.


Park in the main lot and walk East along Rt. 80 until you get to the rocks. It's actually quite a safe walk if you stay on the woods side of the guard rail. 5 minute walk

Look for the obvious and sloped broken cliff feature that you can see from the road.

There are also a couple lines on the large, sharp rocks up in the hills.
