Mystery Rock is the name given to this small formation by Bernard Gillett in his Saint Vrain Canyons Guide. He discovered several bolted climbs here, but he was unable to obtain any information about them or their first ascentionists. If anyone steps forward to claim these first routes, the name of the rock and the routes may change.

Getting There 

Mystery Rock is located 7.0 miles up South Saint Vrain Canyon, about 0.1 mile up the road from Trojan Bunny Buttress. There is a large pullout on the right side of the road as you head uphill. The rock is located directly across the stream from the lowest point of the pullout.

Mystery Rock is hard to see from the road, but it is only about a five minute approach with almost no uphill slogging.
