Temporary Access Impediment MORE INFO >>>


When entering the canyon from Red Cliff, Napoleon Wall is the first crag you come to on the right side of the tracks. The climbs don't receive much traffic, though plenty of locals walk the tracks below the cliff. Most of the climbs face due west and as such receive plenty of afternoon sun.


A. Rosette, 8, 1p, 60', bolts.
B. Don't Forget Your Friends, 10, 1p, 75', bolts.
C. Reaping Havoc, 11-, 1p, 60', bolts.
D. I'm Just A Lump Of Coal But..., 9, 1p, 60', bolts.
E. Guillotine, 11-, 1p, 25', bolts.

Getting There 

Park on Water Street and walk down into the canyon along the tracks. The first couple routes are located on independent rocks 100’ or so before the tracks split, while the rest of the climbs are located a little farther down on the right, next to a large talus slope.

This climb features a steep, bouldery start that leads to an intricate slab up high. Pull through the first two bolts on huge, blocky holds. The angle kicks back after that, but the climbing gets more intricate and the grade stays consistent....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
