Prestige Worldwide Wall is found uphill behind the Nightworm Pinnacle. The Rebel Wall can be seen to the right. The small crag has an steep/overhanging section and a short slab with moderates around the corner to the left. The crag is protected from the wind and receives morning and early afternoon sun.
The Nightworm Pinnacle offers a couple moderate climbs to hit on the way up to Prestige Worldwide. There are some boulders on the trail up to mess around on as well.
Park the same as Nightworm Pinnacle 8.0 miles up the canyon. It is across from the New Economy Cliff. Cross the road and follow a loose trail to the base of the Nightworm Pinnacle. Scramble around the right side of Nightworm and follow the wash to the right uphill past cairns. Prestige Worldwide will be hidden behind a large cedar tree on the left. The approach will be about 10 minutes uphill from the road.
Per Mark Derham: the pullout is just past mile marker 264.
This is located left around the corner from the steep wall. Scramble up tiers of rock to a small, right-facing corner (gear) on the bulge. Follow the corner and slab past two bolts to an anchor on a ledge.Eds. The length of the route is listed as longer, since using a 100' rope will not allow you to belay your second from the ground. It was originally entered as a 40' route....[more]Browse More Classics in CO
I was poking around the canyon today and took a walk up the hill to check this place out. It's a cool little spot. My only thought was that you might consider camouflaging the chains you installed, so they don't stand out so much.
A little more beta for the approach, if you park in the pullout with the large back boulder, you need to walk about 1/8th of a mile west along the road before you cross. You will see a cairn marking the faint climber's trail and the Nightworm Pinnacle to the left.
This is a unique little climbing area which I thought was pretty fun. I has a bit of an adventure feel to it. The approach is pretty steep. When you arrive you have the choice of a good number of very undeveloped lines with a couple of rap anchors to get back down. There is actually a good amount of good low angle intro trad up here. Plus it is very secluded for CC. You'll most likely be the only group there which is nice for busy weekends.
