This is a North-facing wall that is opposite of Rumdoodle Ridge. The area is near where the Oil Creek Tunnel comes out of the mountain.

Getting There 

Park in any turnout above Glen Cove on the Pike's Peak Tollroad near the closed dirt road that accesses the trail. The trail system follows the ridge to the south and drops down into the Oil Creek basin on the North Fork of French Creek and then ends at the tunnel. North-facing lines along the ridge form snow and ice in the early season.
