Rodent Ravine has a few crags that are worth the visit - Rodent Rock, The Gopher, and Mouse Slab.

Getting There 

The flood a few years ago seems to have changed the approach. To reach the climbable formations, just hike up the drainage until you hit the first crag, which is Rodent Rock, which has one ok slab route. Gopher Rock is where you want to be. A little scrambling and maybe a few class 4 moves get you there, nothing too serious.

Free Drop 5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a  Colorado : Lyons : ... : The Gopher
This is an overhanging slot to a nice finger crack. Set a belay at the top (no anchors), then walk off. It is probably a bit easier than the 11d rating given in Bernard Gillett's book, as I was able to climb it, and I am pretty sure I can't climb 11d....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
