The Bypass features a handful of routes on granite with an easy, flat approach on a paved bike path. Situated within spitting distance of one of the most popular trails in Colorado is this little crag, perfect for an after work session or a quick pump. A handful of draws and a short rope is all you need for some quick cranking in Glenwood Canyon. There are a couple gems here, but The Fuse is an excellent climb and worthy alone of the trip.
Approach time is 10 minutes. Park at the Hanging Lake rest area (exit # 125). Hike east on the bike path, passing the Hanging Lake Trail. A few minutes past the trail is a rockwall/revegetation project within yards of the trail. Just past that is a couple of large boulders in the grass on the left side of the trail. The Bypass is above. Scramble up a few moves of 3rd class to a grassy terrace below the climbing.
