Squat Rock and Sphinx Rock are currently both closed.
From Pine (see area description), take Elk Creek Road West for approximately 0.7 miles to a small parking area (2, maybe 3 cars will fit). Hop boulders across the creek and follow the obvious trail for 5 minutes. It's best to keep following the trail to the point where your route starts as some unpleasant boulder hopping is required if you cut straight to the rock.

Tie in while on the block, back from the route, get your belay slave ready and take the swing... then lower down to the start. Just a quick "jump" start to get your blood pumping....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
