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.

Fantastic route!! When approaching the cliff from below, look up and spot two large trees in the middle of the rock on a ledge. Also try and spot a bunch of large tubs located in the middle of the rock. The route starts to the left of the tubs.Scramble up to the starting ledge just left of a tree close to the vertical wall. It is the second bolted route from the right. Start just left or the red, vertical streak and start to Slippery When Wet. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
