This is right by the highway, so watch for traffic. As well, it is by the river, so communication can be an issue - have your rope tug signals worked out.

Getting There 

Take CO Hwy 14 - 9.6 miles west of Ted's Place (US Hwy 287 intersection). This is on the south side of the road just past Greyrock parking area, before you get to Poudre Park.

Rusty Chains & Yellow Tat route 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b  Colorado : Fort Collins : ... : Routes
At around 100 feet tall, this bolted route is a good romp for a budding leader. While the bulk of the route is composed of step-like ledges and large knobs (5.5 or easier), there are two slightly more difficult sequences between the 1st and 2nd bolts and again just below the anchor (5.6).This has generally good rock, but lichen abounds. There are some loose blocks on the arete climber's right of the route-- so watch out if doing TR variations....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

There is a route around and to the right of Don't Damn it. It looks fairly new with about 7 bolts and a 2 bolt chain station (although the bolts and hangers, and cold shunts are new, but the chains are rusty??). Pretty easy, well bolted route, guessing about the 5.5- 5.6 range. Anyone have any info on this route?
Also there are no longer any chains or anything on the two bolt belay at the top. Plan a walk off unless you bring some slings.

At mile 9.5 (or thereabouts), there is a dirt pull-out on the river-side of the road identifiable by the wooden stairway down to the water. Park here & walk upstream maybe 50 yards.
