Description 

This area is centered around the obvious dihedral on east side of CO Hwy 141 at the beginning of Nine Mile Hill. I am not sure if this area has stand alone route or if there are others in area. We would continuously comment we should climb that as we would drive by to climbs further up the canyon. The rock quality is decent sandstone and needs to see traffic before the rock will clean up.

Getting There 

Take HWY 141 west from Whitewater (HWY 141 & HWY 50 intestection). Go past East Creek day use area, over cattle guard, and as you begin up Nine Mile Hill there is a road/pullout on your right. Park in pullout on west side of road. If you make it to Thor Wall you've gone too far. Walk/hike SE of HWY 141 approximately 200 yards uphill. No observed trail but obvious dihedral marks area.

This is a fun but sketchy route, as first 2 bolts are distant. It is a slab climb with a chimney middle. Free climb first 10 feet (5.8) to ledge. From here, a couple quick moves over a bulge (5.9) will grant you access to the first bolt about another 8 feet above. If you feel uncomfortable here, a #6 BD would work nicely before your move over the bulge. Somebody tall placed bolts, as someone 5'8" or shorter is on their tiptoes to clip in several places. After the first bolt, work your...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
