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.
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.

Start with a reachy move to gain a ledge, then follow the seam/crack until it peters out and the angle steepens. Crank through the crux zone and work your way onto "The Ramp". A final headwall with positive but pumpy holds guards the anchors. Old school bolt spacing adds some excitement! ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
