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.

This is on Seam Rock, a few miles up the dirt road from Combat Rock...follow Rossiter's approach info...just park on the left road at a small pullout and cruise north, up the mountainside and slabs...then drop down into draw and go up water streaked slabs to the base of the route at the low point of the rock.P1 goes low-angle up and right to a blank section with a bolt and join a large quartz streak that goes up and left (runout but easy) to a good ledge.P2 goes up short crack onto steep slab an...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Tony Bubb tops out on Cedar Park Slab in Sept 1995. The nice view behind is somewhat obscured by an active wild-fire. We watched planes dump water on it all day while climbing. Photo by Tammi Geckle.

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!
