This is a very obvious big face and left facing corner system just across from the Pinnacle parking area. The slab, just to the left of the corner, is quite remarkable looking. There are a few routes listed, but lots of variations exist. In the winter, the west face itself has been climbed as a mixed route. Beware the lack of anchors at the top of the face. You will see where someone chopped them in the past. A rappel can be made from a tree on a ledge at the top. The standard Pinnacle descent can be used as well.

Getting There 

Use the approach as described for North Cheyenne Canyon. From the parking area, 0.85 miles past the beginning of the canyon, you will see the west face in front of you. Walk west or to the right for a few yards from the pullout. The corner will come into view. A trail is located in the trees, behind another pullout, that gives access to a gully that scrambles up the base of the climbs.

This is a really nice climb. Approach as for The West Face. Scramble up a gully to the start of the climb. Climb 2 pitches up the slab beside the obvious, left-facing corner system on the right side of the west face. The first pitch has a funky start. Pitch 1 - there is a hard move, boulder problem really, that goes over a bulge and gets you up to a stance where the first bolt is. It would seem that either side of the bulge will go, but most people tend to favor the left side. Clim...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
