Within the town of Steamboat Springs lies a little crag known as Butcher Knife.
This little gem might not be the most spectacular crag within Colorado, yet it serves as a well needed climbing area in Steamboat.
The canyon lies near the middle school, its fairly obvious. Walk through the canyon and near the middle lies several cliffs.
