This is a beautiful and mostly undeveloped granite wall. Loose rock and lichen abound, but hopefully with more work, a wonderful climbing area will be developed.

Getting There 

The wall is visible from the western end of town and from the back area of the ski resort. Take the road through the town of Eldora, continue after the road turns to dirt. Take the left turn towards Hessie trailhead. From the Hessie trailhead, hike 1.5 miles to Lost Lake, you will make two lefts towards Lost Lake at posted trail junctions. From Lost Lake campground #3, head East for 0.3 miles on a very faint trail. The cliff will eventually become very obvious.
