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.
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.

This is a really nice easy climb, though a bit crusty with lichen in places at present....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
