Description 

This area is the general description for the rock outcrops below High Wire. The rock rises out of river and is located 100 feet below and right (north) of the Wall of Justice, and directly below High Wire. In general the rock is comprised of discontinuous faces and cracks, but there may be a worthwhile route in the chaos.


Getting There 

During low tide, it may be possible to walk south along the river from the west side of the tunnel #2 bridge.

During high tide, you will need to scramble up to the High Wire Crag, follow the trail south to the Wall of Justice, continue south past the Wall of Justice, scramble down to the river when possible, and then scramble north along the river passing directly below the Wall of Justice. Depending on your disposition you will either find this scramble fun, or you will be in a pretty bad mood by the time you reach the base. Think fun and adventure.

This is short, steep, and pumpy. The holds and pro are all there, but the question is if you can stay with it before the gas runs out.This diagonal crack (left to right) faces north, is about 40 feet above the river, and can easily be seen from the bridge on the east side of Tunnel 2. Begin on the low angle arÍte near the edge of Clear Creek. Set an anchor for your belayer and climb over an easy shelf to the base of the crack. 30 feet of assorted finger, hand, and arm jams with a jug in betwe...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
