Do not park on road. Temporary closure of Burn area. MORE INFO >>>


This is a nice, south-facing wall with several good problems. Most of the routes are pretty short and consist of a few crux moves to good topout holds. This is a great area for warming up and has a nice variety of problems from V0 to V5. One can also get a good view of the dam from here.

There are also a handful of additional good problems just downhill and left of this wall.

Getting There 

From the scenic overlook, hike to the Utility Boulder. From there, continue south through the trees and trend uphill towards the summit of the granite formation. There is a corridor near the top of the formation. The Summit Wall is the south-facing wall of that corridor. It is a little tricky to find if you are heading there for the first time.

Bust V2 5+  Colorado : Gross Reservoir : Summit Wall
Sit start on a left hand crimper and a right hand sidepull pocket. Get some good feet, and do a big move up and left to a jug. Top out through more jugs. There is a worthwhile variation that starts the same but goes up right....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
