This is the main crag of the Deville area. It is a nice little 400' buttress that is oddly detached from the main cliff. There are nice 5.7 to 5.11 lines on the face. Some lines are more lichen-covered than others. Nonetheless, this is a fun place to be, especially with the cool crisp fall days of Colorado. The walkoff involves dropping down between the main cliff and the front face and then moving right to the 2nd to 3rd class terrain.

Getting There 

Hike up the switchbacked trail behind the Cheley Camp. At around the 7th or 9th switchback, you angle up and right to the base of the cliff. Count on about 20 minutes. The brief hike can be wonderful on cool mornings or days.

Can be done in 2 60m pitches or traditionally 4 pitches. P1 can start left of a groove/wide crack. Traverse right into a crack. Go up past a natural thread. You can reach a ledge at about 120'. Continue up through a bulge that is easier than it looks. Save the #4 Camalot for just bel...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
