Ryan slabbin' it up on Xenolith.

Description 

This is the short 60-foot-high wall directly below the wide quarried ledge on the right side of the main quarry. It is also the very south end of the Whale.

This crag faces East, so it drops into the shade by 230pm or so.


Getting There 

Access it by hiking into the quarry and then walking northeast across the quarry floor to the cliff base.

Fun climb along the arete. Compared to the  5.6s in the canyon, this seems closer to a 5.6--but it's still easy.

Climb up the slab just to the right of the quarry. Edge and smear up perfect sandstone to anchors just below the ledge rim (thanks, Stewart). Has a great place at the top to belay from, and also you can climb over the top to a large flat area with a great view. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
