Springer Gulch Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Springer Gulch Wall.
The wall sits high above the entrance to the Springer Gulch Campground area (see photo). The south-facing wall does not appear to get much traffic, but the rock is good and it appears to have a variety of bolted climbs.
NOTE -- for route descriptions in this area and around Colorado, I highly recommend Stewart Green's "Rock Climbing Colorado, 2nd Edition (2010)" guidebook. I've bought most of the guidebooks for Colorado, but if I could only purchase one, this would be it :-)
As you enter the Springer Gulch Campground, there are a few campsites at the bend in the road before it goes about 400 yards up to the main campground loop. The wall is directly (and high) above these first campsites. From the these campsites, look up (north) to see the wall, cross through the second campsite and follow a path that heads uphill to the wall. It's easy to find, but the last 1/3 of the hike is fairly steep uphill. It's about a 10 or 15 minute approach hike to the base of the wall.

A short walk around the (climber's) right and slightly uphill of SGW is another wall with a handful of bolted routes. Is there any info on these routes?
