Description 

The New Economy Cliff is located on the south-side of Clear Creek Canyon, about one mile upstream from Tunnel #3. The most obvious feature on the cliff is a large, white right-facing corner on the right (west end) side of the cliff. There is a obvious pullout on the south side of the road. The cliff can be approached by wading the creek or by a Tyrolean traverse located about 500 feet upstream from the parking area. All routes are bolt-protected and end at bolt anchors. There are currently 15 routes ranging in grades from 5.10 to 5.12c. The cliff facing north and makes for a great early morning crag during the hot summer months.

Getting There 

Travel west through Clear Creek Canyon a mile past Tunnel #3. Park at a pullout on the south-side of the road. Park here. Wade the creek or use the tyrolean traverse (NO LONGER) located 500 feet upstream from the parking area.

We spent a superb day at the New Economy Cliff, however, it would be useful to have a photo of the right and left sides of this cliff with route annotations as well. Once again, congratulations to Bob D'Antonio and his partners for creating a fine climbing spot that most of have been ignoring for all these years.
