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.
The Gilded Lady, she lives!!! This overhanging classic is located just left of Bolts and Hoes. Climb jugs through bolt two, and then make a few long moves, followed by a large throw, and clip bolt three. Cop out left for a quick rest or continue firing up the overhang through the crux and make a photo finish throw to the lip. It's not over until you're on the ledge!!...[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.
