Horsetooth Rock - West Face

The majority of the climbs are 2-4 pitches in length. There are a few single pitch lines located on the opposing ends of The Tooth. Be wary of falling debris from the hikers above. The rock quality is similar to Arthur's Rock.

Set gear as high as you can, and then bust out on to the ledge above (the gear on the upper dihedral can be tricky to see for newer leaders). Continue up a fist crack to chains. A single 70m just reaches to ground from these anchors. A 60 meter can be used, but one will have ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
