This is a West-facing, 1/4 mile long cliff band of Dakota formation sandstone that is maybe 20 feet tall with lots of potential for vertical highball bouldering. Many problems have been done over the years. There is still a lot of loose rock, so expect to do some cleaning. It has great views over the Ridgway Reservoir of the Sneffels Range. This is perfect for a summer evening session after work.

Getting There 

From the Ridgway State Park visitors center at Dutch Charlie, walk west down the concrete Overlook Trail. Scramble down through the cliff band and head south along the bottom of the cliff band exploring for problems.
