Private Idaho has an interesting history. It was the first rock to see new development in 1994 or 1995 when things got started on Devil's Head - despite it having the very worse approach of all of the rocks developed here. Private Idaho presently hosts three routes, one being trad the other two being sport. Climbing is typical of the best stone at Devil's Head with some terrific incut flakes on a bullet proof matrix. The climbs face South by South-West and being high on the wall hold sun until late afternoon.
The best approach to Private Idaho is to climb the Crimpfest Wall via Dave's Dilemma and walk left to the Private Idaho nook. Another approach is to top out on Rock Nazi and scramble down into the Idaho nook.

Featured Route For Private Idaho
See the description for Hidden Treasure. Private Idaho is just to the left and is only slightly easier. Both routes tend to work on the fingers despite the incut flakes. A bad bolt on this line was backed up by a good bolt and it appears that getting out the first may be more of task than is warranted. Three stars here as well - Private Idaho is just as interesting as Hidden Treasures....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
