Description 

This is a stunning, 350 foot Wingate cliff located just downstream from Psycho Tower. Back in the '80s and '90s Charlie Fowler and company put up a few routes here including a 3 pitch line to the rim. Currently there are only a handful of established lines, but many more single and multi-pitch lines await future ascents. The wall is mainly west-facing and gets great afternoon sun. You won't be finding any crowds here. The best times to climb are in the spring and fall.

Getting There 

See directions as for Psycho Tower. From pullout, drive approximately 2 miles down 20R until you see the west-facing cliff on your right before you get to the bridge. Park where possible, and find the best way up to the wall. There are no real trails leading to the base, although starting below the right end of the wall seems to be the best path. There is a faint climber's trail along the base of the cliff.

Getting into the lieback.

This climb is the furthest left on the wall (same start as for the route Cholla). Climb up about 15 And reach left to off-finger crack in corner. Getting established in this dihedral seems to be the crux. Continue liebacking with little rest to the anchors. Even though this is one of the easiest routes on the wall, it makes for a harsh warm-up!...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
