Description 

The Clock Tower is the second most popular crag at the Sport Park, after Surprising Crag. It gets morning shade, making it a good choice for a hot day. It has a number of fun routes, mostly in the 5.10 to 5.11 range, although there are a few 5.9s.

It's divided into two areas: the left side of the crag is the Chicken Wall. It has a number of fun 5.10 routes. The right side of the crag is the Upper Wall. It has some harder routes in the 5.11 and 5.12 range.


Getting There 

Take a right when you get to the aqueduct trail; shortly after take a trail up left to the crag. You'll come up to the crag at the Chicken Wall, near the route Daddy Blocker.

Rubber Chicken 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ E3 5b  CO : Boulder Canyon : ... : Chicken Wall
This is located on 'The Chicken Wall' of the 'Clock Tower'. Locate this route by walking uphill (left) to the second last set of bolts, just uphill past a dirty corner/groove system. Climb the face with sloping holds on great feet, past 7 bolts to the anchor, may be a little reachy for some but overall quite an enjoyable route. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
