Description 

For some reason this crag feels like the red-headed stepchild of Ptarmigan Creek. Sitting all alone on the other side of the creek, with a completely different approach and only a handful of routes, Squawk Rock doesn't get a lot of attention. However, the routes here are very fun and tend to be on the extreme side of technical; grades will feel sandbagged if you don't bring your footwork and a solid head! With a quick approach from the car, this is a great place to get a few high quality after-work pitches in if you're climbing in the 5.12 range.


Getting There 

From Aspen, drive a 1/2 mile passed Lincoln Creek road to pullout on the right under the power lines that cross the road. Find the cairn on the hillside across the street that marks the start of a faint climber's trail. Follow this trail for 5 minutes (look for the cairns) and scramble up the scree field to the base of the cliff.
