Description 

Small crag near Chatfield with some quality routes in the 5.9 range. Nice and sheltered for winter climbing, shady enough in the summer to climb as well. Mostly southeast/southwest facing.

This is a great crag to hit in the winter, its very footwork intensive climbing where you can place some gear, clip some bolts and keep your head in the game for leading.

cams from a 0/purple metolius to a #3 camalot are useful.


Getting There 

Walk south from the Chatfield climber pullout down the old road without turning on to any trails for about 10 minutes. Eventually the road turns back into the blue trail(still go strait) and you will be on top of the cliff.

Rusty Oldtimer 5.9+ 5c 17 VI E1 5a  CT : Southeast : 9 Wall (Feather Ledges)
This climb was done a long time ago by someone who put in one 1/4 inch bolt to pro the whole climb. Pinch your way past the first bolt to a decent stance with a hand jam on the way, head strait up to the next bolt, pass an undercling/sidepull then mantle left of the third bolt and run up to the anchors. If you stay right of the third bolt and avoid the jug out left it goes at 10d.A bit run out on top, make sure the belayer pays attention here....[more]   Browse More Classics in CT

kudos to route developers. bolts are placed only where reasonable gear is not available.
