Description 

This wall is right off the County Road and the approach is about a minute. However very secluded. Most of the climbs are on the East side of the rock (facing away from the county road. You can find sport and Trad climbing at "Almost A Tunnel" The rock is the same granite as other climbing areas in BV and gets sun most of the day.

Getting There 

In the middle of Buena Vista, turn East off US Highway 24 onto Main Street. Go a couple of blocks and turn North onto N. Colorado Street (Chaffee County Rd. 371). After approximately 3.1 miles from Main Street and immediately after the 4th tunnel, you will see a large rock on the East side of the road.

C. Love at the first crux.

That 5.10a 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  CO : Buena Vista : Almost A Tunnel
Great 5.10 climbs up 5 bolts to two cold shut anchors (shared with "This 5.8"). Some slightly tricky moves come with a few solid holds and a small roof near the top. It is a good climb if starting to lead 5.10 climbs, though there is a short runout between the first and second bolt....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
