This wall contains some nice moderate lines as well as some harder testpieces. See directions below for more detail on location, but it's defining feature is a boulder about 10 feet away from the wall that is as high as the wall itself. This boulder keeps this contour around a dihedral.
This wall lies between the falls wall and hedgeclipper wall on the eastern side of the canyon. The easiest way to reach it is via the rim rock trail. It is probably 400 yards north of the ruined dam. It's noticable feature is a L-shaped corner that has a gigantic boulder in the corner that makes it that shape, rather than a dihedral. To the south of that corner there are four routes, spaced about 10 feet apart from each other that you can rap off of. However, the easiest access is a 5.4 ramp 10 yards n/w of the corner. Two routes are n/w of this ramp - one on the giant boulder face, and another 20 yards further on the main face that climbs the arete.

This is a good short warmup route for anywhere along this area. You climb on the north-facing face of the giant boulder that defines the wall. A few face moves put you into a tiny left-facing dihedral. Great hand holds allow me to use the word "jug-fest" to describe this route....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
