Spring is flowering atop Tollhouse!

Description 

The main wall of Tollhouse Rock holds slab routes and a couple classic cracks up to four pitches in length. It gets stellar winter sun, and is a great fall - spring weekend destination. Face climbs tend to be run out. Some folks have said that ratings are sandbagged. Judge for yourself - they tend to be graded a little harder than most places I've climbed in Colorado.

Getting There 

From the top of the 4WD road, head down the slab approach gully and cut right underneath the sport slab, following a faint trail through the manzanita. Staying close to the wall, routes will appear on the right. Tollhouse Traverse is the obvious left-trending wide crack starting about half way across the face, and is a good landmark for other routes.
