  • Description 

    Poot Ridge is a secluded tablet of rock behind (west) of Overhang Rock. The one thing guaranteed at Poot Ridge is solitude. Also, I would guess some potential for some new routes as I did noticed a beautiful unclimbed overhanging finger crack (12?) in the area.

    Getting There 

    The best access is via Bear Canyon Trail. Hike west up Bear Canyon, passing the Overhang Rock trail (not obvious), until you're adjacent with Stonehenge. Then leave the trail and bushwhack your way south up the hill to Poot Ridge. Make sure you're on the west side of the ridge.

If you're climbing at Overhang Rock or other routes at Poot Ridge, this would be worth the side excursion. The route by itself is NOT worth the approach.From the large boulder behind the summit where Stoned Operation is located, gain the ridge on its northern end. This can also be approached from the east via a pine needle covered slab. Once on the ridge, enjoy a surprisingly sharp knif...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
