BETA PHOTO: This is the view from the parking lot for Idlewild...


This is a sunny, secluded 250' cliff with dozens of cracklines on super high-quality BTC granite.

Friends and I have established 13 pitches on the crag, two of them still projects, with room for still more.

I wholly acknowledge the possibility (although unlikely) that folks have climbed here before, so any info about previous activity would be great.

Getting There 

Park in the pullout beneath Nancy's Rock, across the road from Idlewild Dam. Hike up the trail to Nancy's Rock, then veer right around the cliff band and straight up the broad, grassy ridge. There is no trail, nor a good way to describe the details of the approach. My photos of the hillside will be the best tool for finding the crag. 45-60 minute uphill approach.

Rock Climbing Photo: Wake The Flake in red.  Wear The Flare in yellow.

Wear The Flare 5.11 6c+ 23 VIII- 23 E4 5c  Colorado : Estes Park Valley : ... : Jungle Wall
The meat of this pitch is the obvious v-groove corner / flare 40 or 50 feet up the cliff. This flare is guarded by some difficult and crowded maneuvers, in order to surmount the roof, at its base. Easier climbing leads up the flare and out the wild little roof at its top....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

Actually the description should say park in the parking below "Nancy's Rock", not Mary's.

Whoops, thanks for catching that, Allen. I fixed it in the description.

No problem. I just thought the hike from Mary's Bust would be too long. Nice photos by the way. I intend to get up there this spring, try out your routes and put some new ones up as well. Allen

Yeah, the approach from Mary's Bust would be brutal, huh?
By the way, the two new routes up on Skull Rock both seem hard, 11+ at least.
