This is the smaller cliff located out right (east) of the main Ophir Wall. This is home to a few good single pitch routes. It is west-facing, so it is cooler early and sunnier later in the day.

Getting There 

From the Ophir Wall parking area, enter the boulderfields below the wall and traverse to the far right staying relatively low. It takes approximately 15 minutes.

This is the first hard route on the Ophir Wall, it has never been seconded. It was put up and freed in 1996.First pitch: this has a 5a or 5.9 move. It is an average pitch, bring pro or use first pitch of Goldrush, which is much better.Second pitch: 8c/8c+ or 5.14d/15a. It has a very tricky sequence up high and is sustained for 6 meters. Otherwise, it is quite reasonable....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
