Description 

Tucked away in the trees but just off the road, the Wild Rock area boasts some of the greatest bouldering on the Pass as well as some of the best hard sport routes on Wild Rock itself. Bring a crash pad and a rack of quickdraws and you could climb great problems for days or challenge yourself on one of Indy Pass' hardest open projects!

Getting There 

From Aspen, drive 11 miles and park on the righthand side of the road, just past mile marker 52. Look for a faint trail on the other side of the road.

Climbing Season

For the Independence Pass area.

Weather station 4.5 miles from here

Featured Route For Wild Rock Area
Rock Climbing Photo: Jay Knower sets up for the crux of Wild Thing.

Wild Thing 5.13a 7c+ 29 IX+ 29 E6 6c  Colorado : Independence Pass : ... : Wild Rock
This is another Pass classic at the grade. Steep, juggy climbing up a corner leads to a cool roof encounter and a good rest after the crux. A few more technical moves gain the chains. This is a great antidote to the generally thin climbing on the Pass....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
