Description 

This is one of the more sunny walls of Long's Peak and thus the rock season is longer. It is relatively short, so the commitment level is reduced; however, don't underestimate the wall, as folks have been benighted here crashing in on folks camped in the Boulder Field. It sports nearly 20 routes that are 4-7 pitches in length. In early season, there can be snow at the base of this wall.

Some of the more popular routes include: Babies R Us, 5.12a; Royal Flush, 5.11c; Red Wall, 5.10a, Middle Path, 5.11b; Directissima, 5.10a; & Martha, M3.

Descent is probably easiest along the Camel, class 3 to the R.

Getting There 

Most approach this area from Long's Area trailhead off CO Hwy 7. Hike up to Chasm Lake, 4.5 mi. Ascend scree/boulders to the base of this wall up & right past Chasm Lake.

Babies R' Us 5.12- 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a PG13  CO : Alpine Rock : ... : Chasm View Wall
This is a fantastic route on clean rock. It is good for a shorter/warmer alternative to the Diamond or a hard man start as an alternative to the North Chimney. It has some solid runouts, but the bolts are where you need them for the hard climbing. Pitch 1. Smear some delicate slab moves up to the first bolt, clip it, and take a deep breath. Head straight up the obvious weakness, aiming for a pin in a shallow, left-facing corner up and right. Clip this pin, move up and right out of the corner...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
