Predators' Perch from McCabe's Lane.


"The only reason animals come here is to eat other animals," -Josh K.

This prominent, north-facing buttress is separate from the main climbing area of Hartman's and offers several trad climbs with potential for a couple more. Get ready to get your crack climbing on. You'll know you're at the right place if there's bird poop and bones everywhere, but with a little love and cleaning, these could be some superb climbs.

Getting There 

Go west on hwy 50 out of Gunnison and turn left, south, onto McCabes Lane. Follow McCabes over the Gunnison River, past a small quarry, and stay right at the fork. You'll go by some ranch homes and gates, and then be back on public land. The buttress will be to the south standing by itself and very near to a prominent fork in the road. Park at the pull out and walk ~150yds to the base.

Follow the slightly left-trending crack system, which starts as hands and then becomes layback fingers. Right below the lip at some jugs, traverse right 10 feet, and follow the seam/crack over the bulge. There are no anchors, but a top rope can easily be set up on gear....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
