This is a section on the rock of along the Middle Fork of the St. Vrain River. It is ~8000' in altitude. The rock is granitic. This generally receives little climber attention. The Middle fork is typically fairly easy to cross via wading; however, a heavy spring runoff may make it more challenging and require extra shenanigans like balancing over a log.
To get there from Lyons, take CO 7 up the St. Vrain Canyon to the intersection with CO 72. Take a left (south) and after a few miles, the Piz will dominate the left side of the highway across the St. Vrain River.
