This is a small rock, high up, on the north side of the canyon. It presently contains 4 sport routes and is about 70' high. It is doubtful there will be a lot of people here. It is normally very sunny. The rock is the same granite found throughout the canyon.
You park in the same place as you do approaching the Security Risk crags and Happy Hour crag. Head up the hill on the same trail as for Security Risk. Go all the way up to Higher Security Risk, and then head towards the Solar Dome. Once at Solar Dome, head west on the old mining road below the Dome. The road turns into a small trail. You will see a old mine hole on the right where a faint trail heads down the hill side towards the crag. You can't see the crag from here, but a post in some rocks and a few cairns mark the way to the crag which is about 500 feet down the hill to the west of Hillbilly Rock 3, which is about 200 feet down the hill and a little to the west. It takes about 45 minutes to hike here.

This is the easiest route at this crag and is very fun. The crux comes at the second bolt where there is a convenient layback hold to clip from. It is easy climbing up to this point. The crux is short, just a few moves. The route is 9+ in difficulty at the third bolt and then is only 5.7 at the fourth bolt....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
