Description 

This crag is situated high above Kannah Creek on the eastern edge of the Land's End Area. The wall is 70-80 feet tall and offers the best true crack climbs on the Mesa.

Getting There 

From the Y at the top of Land's End, continue right for ~4.8 miles and park on the right in a large pulloff. From the pulloff, walk diagonally towards the cliff and back the way you drove in for ~100 meters. Once you enter the trees, locate a large cairn that marks the beginning of a short trail that takes you down to a class 3 boulderfield. Navigate down the boulderfield, and find a fixed rope that leads down a gully to the base of the cliff.

There is also a trail that leads directly to the cliff edge from the pulloff. From the view point, you can clearly see the splitter on "Descend From Grace" on looker's right.

This is a great route that requires some crack climbing technique. Begin up an easy unprotected slab to gain a ledge at the bottom of a splitter. Climb the splitter above that narrows from thin hands to less than tips, and thank jeebus for the face features that appear just in time. Pull up into a left-trending, awkward hand crack and finish up the face on jugs to gain the chains. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
