This area is on the south side of Clear Creek river just west of the CO 119/US 6 between the junction and tunnel 5. I put two short, pumpy routes (six clips) in a few years ago, and there is potential for several more.
About 100 to 200 yards past the junction, there is a small pullout on the south side of the road. Pull up behind a guard rail, there is only room for one car. A pleasant 10 minute walk west along the river will get you to the cliff. The cliff is on the river bank.
Ths is the first route you come to on this steep, short wall. It has slopey and technical climbing, fixed biners for lowering at the anchor, about six clips, I don't remember exactly. Probably you'll find the route to still be a bit chossy, but all major cleaning has been completed....[more]Browse More Classics in CO
This is a really neat area - definitely a lot of potential remaining, even for a few long pitches. Still cleaning up though - pulled off a considerable amount of rock when was here. Also, ticks in the area. A plus though is we stayed dry when it was raining.
