BETA PHOTO: Overlap area- first area you hike to.


First set of substantial rock formations on the east side of the trail at about 2 1/4 miles. Set in a ponderosa, lodgepole, juniper forest with some good shade on the east side slope. The south side of the wall has an obvious section of overlapped rocks. Secluded except for the trail. Bring a wire brush for cleaning. There is a lot of lichen on parts of the rocks. I climbed parts of several routes not listed and didn't finish due to the lichen factor. A top rope may be useful on parts of the Overlap Wall as well.

Getting There 

Hike up the summit trail for 2 1/4 miles to the formations. Overlap Wall is on the east side of the trail, up to 25 feet high.

Overlap Face V2- 5+ PG13  Colorado : Estes Park Valley : ... : Overlap Wall Area
Climb the center of the face thru the overlaps to a good jug to top out on. Could be made easier using the right rounded edge, stick to the face and it is thin....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
