Description 

This is a West-facing, 250 foot or so cliff! It has more of an approach then most EMC crags, which is good. There are less crowds, and you can get naked if you want.

Getting There 

Park at the Messenger Gulch picnic area on the south side of the road. Walk north, and if water level is low, wade the river. Continue walking north on a trail through Messenger Gulch for a quarter mile. Look East (to your right) and hike the steep approach to the cliff base. If not up to it, then park at Eleven Mile Picnic Area, cross the bridge, then follow the trail back west below Turret Dome and into Messenger Gulch, and find the trail and hike north.

Slippery When Wet 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  CO : South Platte : ... : Messenger Wall
The route starts just to the right of Archangel. Follow the red, vertical watermark up to a ledge and clip a hidden bolt. The first 20 feet or so is unprotected, but you can reach left and clip the first two bolts of Archangel if you want. Pull over the roof and angle a bit right and look for the few remaining bolt hangers. Work you way through the crazy, huge tubs. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
