Description 

This is a great bouldering area, with several classic traverses and several more classic straight up problems.


Getting There 

Park at the obvious Capstan Rock and head across the road and downhill for a few feet to a long wall coverd in pockets with a small boulder next to it that resembles a golf club.

Jeff about to pull the crux move - sorry for the resolution :(

Hagan's Wall V4-5 6B+  CO : Boulder : ... : Cloud Shadow
This is a classic of Flagstaff mountain. It is the first problem you come to if approaching from The Capstan. It starts on a small two finger pocket for the right hand and a good, although painful, edge for the left. Pull up and throw to a sloping rail, then throw again above the rail to two not quite ideal pebbles. The top out isn't too bad. A great problem, it is wise to use a pad and a spotter as the crux is a little comitting. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

This rock has a some fun problems and is usually much less crowded than other areas on Flagstaff. Plus it sits in the shade in the afternoon, making it great for after work or class.

This area is usually cramed with dreadlocked bystanders and plenty of people jumping to share their triumphant tales of perilous danger...but other than that, there are some truly classic problems on this wall.
