Description 

A great year round climbing area. With 50+ routes, from easy to hard. Best routes are the harder ones, but beginners will have fun here, also. Beautiful sandstone climbing. Mostly sport, 8 quickdraws recomended, with some trad, 2 sets nuts and cams recommended.


Getting There 

West on CO 145 towards Norwood. Right at the bottom of Norwood Hill, just before the bridge on Forest Service Road 510. A few miles up, park in the large turnout on the left side of road. Trail to crag is across the road. 15 minute approach.

Tried to go to Clay Creek Crag this morning (7/30/2013). Had to turn around on FS 510 due to the road being washed out with deep mud across the road. Our vehicle was not equipped to attempt to cross it.
