This is the easiest crag to reach with an approximate 5-10 minute approach. Most of the lines are moderates except for the large roof route.

Getting There 

From the parking area listed (N37.6435, W103.5838), hike south down a closed road to the rim. Search right (west) for a good 4th class weakness that provides access to the base of the cliff. Once at the base, walk left (looking downhill), where you will reach the obvious large roof for The Lord of La Junta. Continue around the cliff another 150 feet to reach the already established bolted/trad lines.

This is the largest roof at the cliff and isn't to be missed. Climb a fantastic hand crack to the roof. Then undercling right out of the roof where the gear can be a little funky. Pull the crux out of the roof, and then face climb to the top. Despite the upper half appearing chossy, the rock is surprisingly good. Belay off a gear anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
