This is a small rock, high, on the north slope of the canyon. It is not popular but contains 6 sport routes. It has the same granite rock as most of Boulder Canyon. There are not many flat places at the base of the routes and not much shade.
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 hillside 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 200 feet down the hill to the west. It takes about 45 minutes to get here from the road.

This may be the easiest route, at 10d, at the crag. The first bolt is a little high but not too hard to clip. The crux comes at about the third bolt, and the climbing is made easier by stemming in this section. This would not be a good lead for novices whether they climb the grade or not....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
