As impressive in appearance and rock quality as anything in the South Platte, with almost the warmth of Shelf Road. Climbing on this rock for the most part didn't start until 2002. Tanner contains the most routes on Oak Creek Grade Road. Most routes are one too three pitch bolted sport routes, with only one super trad. Route. As most routes are long, a 60meter rope is recommended. The routes vary from being over bolted to a little sporty, depending on who bolted the line. Routes range from 5.7 to 5.11, however the potential for harder routes exists. In winter high winds in the parking lot can be misleading, as most routes are sheltered and pleasant in winter.
Take Fremont County 143 or as it's called, Oak Creek Grade Road, south of Canyon City, to mile marker 11. Park hear, and take trail 1333. After 1/8 miles take the side trail on the right. This trail heads north and will take you to the rocks on the right of Tanner rock, and then east to Tanner Rock. At lest a twenty minute walk from the car.

The route begins by scrambling up to the 1st of two wide pods. You can walk a 3.5 cam to protect the first pod. Exit the first pod going over a small bulge with a finger crack. Continue up past the 2nd small pod into the 30’ splitter finger crack. Perfect ring locks and lay-backing off the lichen covered wall will get you near the top of the crack where you can grab a solid jug. Another 20’ of easy face climbing will get you to the anchors....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
