This small wall currently has three routes, two sport and one trad. The rock is your typical Burro Canyon Sandstone and is slightly taller than most other routes on 9 Mile Hill. There are two dark colored petrified logs exposed in the cliff here.
A. The Normal Life
, 8+, 1p, 55', bolts.
B. My Weekend World
, 7, 1p, 50', bolts.
C. Coiled and Ready
, 7+, 1p, 45', gear.
From Whitewater, turn onto CO 141 heading toward Gateway and drive approximately 6 miles up the canyon (about 1 mile up from the Bone Park). Park in a large pullout just past a guard rail. From here, the wall is easily seen on the east side of the road.
Per Michael Schneiter
