The Palace may best be summed up in 3 words - adventure sport choss. Where else can you train for the Black Canyon's fear-inducing peg bands within the relative safety of modern bolting? Is there another venue in the Northern Front Range that can prepare you better for the hard, sneaky climbing of Eldorado Canyon? Perhaps ... but, perhaps not. Fine tuning ones rock weaseling skills in crystal pimpin', sharp crimpin', and techy footwork (along with a little faith) will see the most wily and dedicated Poudre Canyon aficionado safely up many a seemingly blank line.
Approach as for Red Wall, then head left to the base of H.R. Puf n' Stuff and Natty's 3.2 Light slab where you will find a 2 bolt anchor with chains and fixed static line. Rappel, down climb, or use the fixed hand line to descend into the Back on Black gully.
