I always meant to do a route or two there when I lived in CO. And now that I'm moving back I'll have a second chance! But are any of the routes worth the 1+ hour approach with a rack, or should I just leave it as a day hiking spot and go climb somewhere else? Evan Sanders

Its worth the hike if you like climbing slab. There are several crack climbs with ran out slab sections as well. I would say its worth a trip once if you havn't been up there. Preston

Good to know. I'm not usually a fan of run out climbing, I don't quite have the nerves of steel some climbers have (I'll probably climb about 10-15 feet above my gear at the absolute maximum), but I might give it a shot. Evan Sanders

There is plenty of non runout stuff, it is just lower rated grades. I'm a fan of grey rock.

Since you have moved away though there has been 2 or more fires up there. A lot of hiking through the black. Still a great place to climb though.
