Description 

This is sunny most of the day, especially after 11am. The rock is generally good, but since it is a new area, there are a few loose flakes here and there.


Getting There 

This nice, little, vertical face is located just past Nomad Cave up a gully on the right. If walking from the tyrolean, go past Nomad Cave, take a right, and walk a few hundred feet up the gully. The cliff is on the right side of the gully.

Amy, following up The Diner. Where her left hand is grabbing is a good place for a green or #0.75 Camalot.

The Diner 5.9+ 5c 17 VI E1 5a  CO : Golden : ... : Breakfast Cliff
After some easy climbing in a 3-4 inch sideways crack, climb up left and around the corner and place gear in a 0.5-1 inch seam, a green Camalot works very well here. Pull the crux finger lock to get to some good holds. Be creative on a few gear placements. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Really cool addition to the Primo wall area. Definitely worth the visit!! Such good face climbing in a really nice setting. Primo area needed this area to happen. Thanks, Kevin!! Keep it up, my man.

I am thinking about changing the name of this wall to the Nothing but Crimps Wall, haha.

Came across this cliff by accident, today. Really fun routes and perfectly bolted. Props to the route developer for doing this cliff justice.

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed what the wall had to offer. I think it came out pretty well. Thanks for your your input on the grades, it is hard to be precise because I climb in Clear Creek so much that I'm very used to the style. I do think that the routes, at times, may be a little stiff for the grades depending on your height and crimp ability.

Congratulations; nice addition to CCC. I'm surprised that it kicked up so many nice lines. We had scoped with it binoculars several years ago, were not really jazzed, and never humped up. Super job!! Have you thought about the crag way up the hillside - steep but solid rock.
