Description 

This is the large granite formation overlooking the parking lot for Newlin Creek. It has been left alone by the bolters, which is nice as there are lots of nice crack systems, and ledges for belays. It looks kinda scruffy, but the rock is usually very good, with jugs aplenty. Several moderate trad climbs (at least a half-dozen) have been done to date.

Seems to me it's probably a good idea to get this info included here to hopefully forestall any retrobolting/chopping ugliness.

It's a pretty sunny cliff. Descent: walk off to the west (left). It is apprently within the Forest Service land, so there are no access issues. Best to park on the far side of the lot, to prevent dropping rocks anywhere near your vehicle.


Getting There 

Umm, walk about thirty feet to the base of the rock. For routes on the far right, the hike can be as much as one-hundred feet

On the far left of the crag, past the big clean slab, is an arÍte. This climb takes the arÍte. Nice line. Mostly good juggy rock, but a tad licheny. Some cool moves.P1. Start in the base of the big right-facing book on the left of the slab. Head up to a shallow alcove, then up and left to the arÍte. Continue up the arete, mostly just right of the arÍte itself, to a large ledge with a tree. Belay (5.9, 70').P2. Up the short corner behind the tree to the top (5.7, 20').Descend to the west (left)....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
