State Park; Fee Required. MORE INFO >>>


Park at picnic area just (old barn knoll, I think) below The Bear, hike up the road for 7.5 minutes, and then straight up the The Bear, I think that's what it is called. It's also known as Promontory Ridge...if anyone knows anything about this area I'd love to know of any development to avoid any worries.

Getting There 

I believe it's the middle of three cliffs up on the hill slightly before the Visitor's Center and Mt. Thoridin. It is due east of the Visitor Center/overlook.

The crux is a toss up between pitches 2 and 3. It has a fun crux. Head up and a little right through a steep crack. Belay on a ledge. Traverse right through a rattly overhang that pulls right once again. Walk off. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
