BETA PHOTO: Dags In Beanland and Whetstone.

Description 

Cedar Park Slab (aka Seam Rock) is a large wall (~600 feet high) located up the road from Combat Rock. The rock is low angle with lots of opportunity for friction climbing. The main route here is Dags in Beanland, 5.8, but a few other routes exist.

It is also known as Seam Rock.

L->R:

A. Slab Ants, 6, 3p, 450', gear.
B. Dags in Beanland, 8, 4p, bolts & gear.
C. Whetstone, 7, 5p, 500', bolts & gear.
D. Crack Slabbeth.

Getting There 

The approach crosses private land, so either ask for permission or tread lightly and be respectful. From Drake, go right on the road heading towards Glen Haven, then take your first right onto a forest service road. Drive up this for about 2.5 miles, take a left, and than take the next major right soon after. From here, many intersections are passed, but stay on the main road until an obvious T-intersection. Park near this intersection, then use your judgement to find the best line to the wall. A fairly big gorge must be crossed, and this is less cliffy the further right you are. Then work up to the base of the slab on grass ledge systems and low angle friction slabs.

Whetstone follows most of the route 'Dags in Beanland', so check that for beta. It only differs in the second pitch.P2) Start the same as Dags in Beanland's second pitch, but traverse right with crack systems to the large left-facing dihedral. Also, a traverse could be made up higher, after clipping the first 3 bolts, then diagonaling to the roof, and hand traversing the underclings to the dihedral. Pull through the tricky roof, then head up easy cracks to another ha...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Actually, the approach does not necessarily cross private land (contrary to what is printed in Rossiter's and Gillett's guidebooks). I recommend looking at maps on the Larimer County Assesor's website for a definitive delineation of private vs. public land in this area. That said, the access is not easy, and the landowners are both ignorant of their property boundaries and unfriendly, so beware!
