Keyhole Rock is the fourth of the major climbable formations at the Garden. Most of the climbing tends to be on the east face of the rock (i.e. good morning sun in the winter, nice shade in the afternoons and evenings in the summer). There are routes on the west face, but from what I hear, they are not worth the effort. Routes range in difficulty from loose 5.6 to solid 5.12. I recommend looking at the D'Antonio or Geiman guidebooks first, because some of the routes are extremely unprotected and could result in major falls. That being said, the majority of the routes are relatively short and bolt/pin/piton protected.
There are a number of ways to get to this formation. The three main ones in no particular order:

Macbeth 5.10 6b 20 VII- E2 5b CO : Colorado Springs : ... : East Face - 3rd Tier
This is a steep and sustained route with fun, interesting, and balancey moves. It feels a little wild the first time you climb it, with some decent whipper potential. The rock quality is actually pretty good, but you're always wondering, especially because it probably doesn't get climbed very often.I enjoyed this climb and will probably do it again. I'd recommend it for anyone wanting something a little more obscure, but still safe, and away from the crowds....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
