  • Description 

    This is a tiny crag with a couple routes and some potential for other lines. It lies below Mickey Mouse Wall and Cave Rock on the south side of Tunnel 6. It is below the railroad tracks.

    There are 2 established bolted lines here, as noted on p. 101-2 of Richard Rossiter's 2000 Rock Climbing. Eldorado Canyon. There is some potential for creative folks for other lines here.

    The GPS spot is a guess based upon satellite imaging. It's pretty close, but use common sense if you don't match your device to this crag.

    Getting There 

    Take CO 170 past CO 93 heading towards Eldorado Canyon SP. Look for a small sign indicating the Yoga Ashram on CO 67. Drive up the gravel road a short distance to a gate. Park on the east side of the road.

    Hike up the gated road, up 3 switchbacks to a fork. Head south at the fork. Continue to the bridge and intersection with the Goshawk Trail. The Goshawk Trail heads west and then north. Follow it to a sign that indicates climbers' access and "Dead End Trail." Follow the trail up to the west side of Tunnel 6. Hike around the tunnel and drop down a short distance to find this small crag with an overhanging west face.

    This is a good, overhanging sport route on generous holds that packs a bit of a punch. It is the right of the 2 bolted lines.Start low and right. Don't miss the 1st clip, it's hard to see. Power up and left either with a layback or a left sidepull (less chalk). Move right (fragile flake), up, and then left. There is a hold near the 5th bolt that wiggled. Find the reachy crux after the 6th bolt.A stick clip might be useful if this is closer to your limit....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
