Dinosaur Rock is home to a number of easy to moderate slab routes...and now some excellent sport climbs on its north face. There are a number of scrambling approaches from Bear Canyon, but the easiest approach is from the Mallory Cave Trail. There a couple variations on the east face and a couple on the south.
Park at NCAR, and follow the Mallory Cave Trail past Square Rock. The first major rock formation that the trail runs into is Dinosaur Rock. There will be a sign near the base showing the bird closures around Bear Creak Spire in the Spring. A good trail leads you to the east and south faces. The approach time is 30-40 minutes. Count on some extra time to get to the west face climbs.

This is the incredible feat of "sending" all five of the sport routes on the popular north face of dinosaur rock in a single day. This includes from left to right: Pretty in Pinkler, The Shaft, Patience Face, Milkbone, and Ultrasaurus.I know my buddy Bart "the Crusher" Paul did it way back in the day, but I am not sure if anyone else has. I'm assuming some of the prolific Flatiron's route developers such as Matt Samet have done this as well...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
