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.

This climb is located on the Civil Wall, immediately to the right of Tanner Dome.Just right of the chimney which marks the start of several climbs on Civil Wall, this excellent mixed route climbs the most obvious weakness on a steep pink-granite face. The first part climbs a trickier-than-it-looks face past bolts to an exciting stand-up move over a bulge. Those with more patience than I may be able to better protect with RPs in a seam here. Clip another bolt, then traverse left to the crack. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
