  • Description 

    This crag sits high above the Staunton Rocks area. From afar, it looks similar to turkey tail, but unfortunately upon closer inspection the wall isn't as steep. Luckily it still has some cool roofs littered with incipient crack systems and mostly good rock.

    Getting There 

    From the trailhead, take the Staunton Ranch Trail for approximately 1.5 miles until you come to a junction with the Old Mill Trail. Turn right here and follow this trail for 0.9 miles. Once at the old, dilapidated mill, follow the trail around the mill until there is another trail junction. Turn left and follow the Borderline trail for roughly 100 yards. When the trail turns left, continue straight up and find your way up the hill to the obvious cliff above.

At the first roof, stay left (though a sick looking variation would go right), and encounter the strange crux followed by another, shorter roof above. Belay above the second roof.P2, (9, 165 feet) This is an airy pitch that begins by climbing the crack above the belay unti...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
