loading weather...
A good little chill spot after the hike. Good prob...

Description 

This area has slick granite climbing with a lot of potential HARD boulder problems in the area. It is comparable to Castle Hill.


Getting There 

Go to the Wildwood trailhead, hike toward Liberty Cap, take a left at the fork, go 1/4 mile then descend 500 feet.

Start in the same area as Knight Rider, except go right instead.Set a heel hook and go far right to a crescent micro crimp. Match and go up from there, using a sloper on your left....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

So, getting to this do you hike clear up onto the bench below Liberty Cap buttress and then descend? That seems like the only way to do it. I am just hoping for a somewhat shorter approach.

F**K this area... the annoying ass hike is not worth the crappy quality of rock. Completely blank faces all over the place - so sad.

ALSO BE CAREFUL!!!!

When I was up last we encountered RATTLESNAKES!

Was scary, be careful when popping your head around corners looking for lines - with how slippery the rock is, it is easy for them to fall down into the cracks and crevices.
