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.

To make it harder, don't use the "bear hug" move and only use the features on the face....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
