The Capstan Rock Climbing
great rock, with some difficult boulder problems at the base and some highball boulder problems/short TR climbs. Huecos line the lower third of the rock and are filled with chalk, making it immediately noticable from the road. For TR: Two nice horns are perfect for two five foot slings. Access to the top is via an easier boulder problem on the north side just off the road. There's a hard-to-see crimper on the slight gully up the rock that makes the problem much easier; above that it's an easy scramble. Watch out for cars.
1.4 miles up Baseline (measured from the fire danger sign) at the hairpin turn. It's hard to miss. You can park on the left side of the road (driving up the road) and park directly underneath.

Once you manage to pull off the ground, start by going up left hand to a poor sidepull pinch and make a strong move right to a good sharp edge. Get your feet up and cross into another sharp pinch. Finally go up left hand to an...[more] Browse More Classics in Colorado
