This is a small, road-side pillar with one good route on its west side. The route gets morning shade and afternoon sun. This is just off of the road, making a 60-second approach is the norm here, and the only rack for the route is a set of draws + optional 1-1.5" cam.

Getting There 

Park as for the Arch of Titus or the Coluseum, 7.9 miles up canyon, or at Mile 25.2 (0.8 miles past mile 26).

Park on the long, gravel pull-out and walk up canyon ~ 200 meters to the far west side of a tall monolith. Look for bolts going up left of the arete on the West face. That is the namesake route on the crag.

Climbing Season

For the South Fork of St. Vrain Canyon area.

Weather station 8.9 miles from here
