That is the same dog I met today at North Table mountain. What a great dog!

Kirk, Your place looks awesome! I'm eager to check it out the next time I am back in Colorado.
I really could use a Shelf Road fix these days.
The late season North Shore surfing has been good lately but climbing has been on my mind a lot also.
Cheers to you my old friend,
Olaf

Thanks again all for a great climbing trip.

Shelf rocks!

Yurt will be available again after next Wednesday, May 29.
A quieter, more peaceful alternative to camping at Sand Gulch or The Bank...

Get up early and pull down for 5-6 hours at Cactus in the morning Shade and catch the afternoon shade at the Gym.

Less than five minutes from Cactus Cliff!
Sleep in a bed, climb harder, soak the muscles in a hot tub.

Ran into this three foot Bull Snake right outside the Yurt. We haven't seen any mice or rattlesnakes there all season!

Kirk, even though this message is coming a full month late, we wanted to thank you for the hospitality at your yurt! We had an amazing time. It was great to climb with you and we will both spread the word and visit again! Somehow not a single person in our group got a picture of the yurt :( Here are a couple, though.

PS. Austin and I saw a 3.5 foot snake just like that on the old road on our way out. Gorgeous!

The road up to Cactus cliff has washed out! Ten inches of rain fell all at once last Thursday night and flash flooding wiped out several dirt roads in the area. Shelf road from Cripple Creek through to Caņon City is reported to be clear and open.

What's left of the Cactus Cliff road, above the Shelf Road BLM gate.

Whoa! Was this the access for your yurt? Can you still access it? That's some serious washout.

Yup those shots are of the main access road to the Yurt. We'll still be able to walk in until the road is repaired.

The back road is no better.

Kirk, did BLM out the road in better condition than it was in before the storm? We are working on choosing a weekend!

Hi Carin!
I haven't been down there to inspect but from the pics I've seen it looks pretty good.
I will be there later this week, through the weekend and will post up on conditions here after I get back.

Huge thanks to Grant, Madden, and company! It was fun to host your group and climb with you. Hope we get a chance to climb together again.

Shelf was stellar last weekend with perfect temps. to climb in the sun. Sure feels good to soak in the hot tub after climbing.
In the middle of nowhere, under the stars. What an amazing way to finish the day.

The Yurt is still available for the coming Shelf Road Anchor Replacement Weekend, if anyone is interested get in touch and we'll set you up.

The weather looks decent... c'mon down!!!

We're right up the road on the mesa above Cactus Cliff, Spiny, and The Gym.
Private access to the original Cactus Cliff parking for a relatively painless, early start.
Pretty cozy for sure once the sun goes down.
