Description 

Also known as the Pinnacle, lower west face, this 40' high, west facing cliff rises directly above the creek. It is just south of the footbridge opposite the parking area for the Pinnacle. In fact, you will walk past these climbs on your way to the Pinnacle. This is a good place to toprope. Many climbers will sling trees on top of the cliff for anchors.


Getting There 

Follow the directions for North Cheyenne Canyon and park at the Pinacle parking area. It is 0.85 miles from the canyon entrance to a pullout on the right hand side of the road. This is just west of the Pinacle.

Old Aid.

Old Aid 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a  CO : Colorado Springs : ... : Creekside Wall
This is an excellent route! A beautiful crack shoots up the left side of the wall.Clip an old piton on your way to the top. This is an obviously attractive line as you are viewing the wall. It starts out very steep, cruxes at the bulge, but look for good finger locks. Hustle past the fixed piton, and ponder the top out.This one is short, but it packs an old school wallop. Enjoy. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Very nice area to climb the rock is ok and offers a lot of options for different gear placements, nice approach. Been teaching some friends the finer points of clean aid and I can tell ya that you will find a place for everything from ball nuts to hooks or cam hooks to threading old pins w/hero loops or hand placing sawed offs in old scars, it's all there.

One note if ya see an old f&^ *er up there TR-aiding something it's prolly me. If I'm on anything you wish to climb, let me know and I will gladly move. You might have ta yell at me if I'm alone, cus I'm probably groovin' the iPod to some "Lamb of God "or other heavy/death metal.
I use this area as a gym to keep in shape and never have a problem with moving for anyone....

Climbed at this area yesterday. Not really worth the effort or time. The routes are short and the anchor options on top are poor/sketchy. Not really worth the time. Keep going up the hill and get on the routes further up the Pinnacle. They are much more worthwhile, and you'll spend more time climbing and less time dicking around with setting up sketchy anchors for mediocre routes.
