Great rock with tall lines that offer nice landings. This shady wall takes a good deal of gumption to challenge but the prize of success makes it well worth the effort!!

Getting There 

Head towards Gilligan's Island and continue around to the far North side past the "Pirates Cove." Continue into the "Tortuga Area" by holding a northern course and eventually passing"The Pearl." Once passed "The Pearl" trend right (North/East) making your way to the South facing supper high wall of the largest and most prominent feature that by now should be right before your eyes. Fun place to climb.

Climbing Season

Climb up into a nice small ledge on the right side of the wall. Mantle up onto this ledge and work up onto your tip toes and reach as high as you can to gain a bad sloper!!! Work your way up onto the very high slab via mostly bad holds (Scary!!!) to the finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
