The Southeast Face is home to some of the most popular multi-pitch outings on Greyrock. Generally, routes on the left (more southern) aspect of this face are broken between ledges and nice slabs and faces, while routes on the more northern aspect are more sustained in nature. The rock on the Southeast Face is excellent, and peppered with the occasional tree or bush, offering some options for retreat by rappel if necessary. For Fort Collins trad climbers, quality routes like Greatest Route and Barfy's Favorite make Greyrock's Southeast Face a wall not to be missed.
To reach the Southeast Face of Greyrock, follow the Summit trail until reaching a burnt-out area with a large group of aspen trees. Break uphill to the base of the face. Locating the Greatest Route is good starting point, as most of the routes on this website are described with reference to it; Simon and Theodore are located to the south at a nice grassy area, while Barfy's Favorite and others are located to the north.

Mr. Gone is awesome. There isn't an awkward move on the route, the rock quality is consistently excellent, there's a remarkable amount of challenging terrain compared to most other SE Face routes, and many runout sections make this quite an experience. P1: Face climb past three bolts to gain an excellent seam/finger crack that leads, eventually, to easier terrain. Run it out over the lower angle slab to gain a good belay ledge (shared with Jetstream Deluxe) beneath the Prow. Protection can be t...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
