  • Description 

    This crag is much like any other at the Sacred Cliffs and faces primarily West. The rock is not as solid as at the Main Crag or Pebble Beach, but there are still a few routes here.

    While there, check out the tunnel that runs East/West through the crag from the West side to the East, overlooking Skunk Canyon. No climbing is required to get through it. This tunnel lies just below 'The Tunnel Route' in the second chimney system from the left.

    Getting There 

    Approach via the base area trails, passing the Name Game and the Cave Complex areas, but stop just 100 meters short of Pebble Beach.

    This climb offers some pretty good movement and position but is marred by a ledge in the middle and is not very clean yet, for lack of traffic. As it is, it is a 1-star climb. With the traffic it will never get, it might become a 2-star climb, but since it is not in a popular area, it would require a concerted effort to clean it up a bit.Climb up the initial cracks and flakes for a about 40 feet, heading slightly left. The rock here is reasonably good, but there is some lichen to be dealt with. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
