Description 

This newly developed wall in Eagle's Peak canyon hosts a few quality climbs. The rock is mostly good, but watch out for typical front range loose rock and choss. Bolts will be put in soon, but for now it's all gear with a solid tree for an anchor at the top. There's an easy walk-off to the right.

L->R:

A. Form 34, 8, 1p, 60', gear.
B. Frat Hit, 10+ PG-13, 1p, 45', gear.
C. Article 15, 10-, 1p, 45', gear.
D. Behind Closed Doors, 11-, 1p, 50', gear.
E. Project, 12+, 1p, 45', TR.
F. Demerit, 8, 1p, 40', gear.

Getting There 

This is the first wall up the Eagle's Peak trail. It's off the trail to your left at an obvious break in the trees that provides a clear view of the wall. Right now there's not too much of a path up there, but it's pretty straightfoward to get up. Once you reach the cliff, the climbs are around the corner to the right.

This is the "easy way out." A scrambling start leads to a short crack, which is the 5.6 crux. The upper half is a mellow finish to the top. Watch out for loose rock....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
