The Land of the Overhangs Rock Climbing
This ridge is sandstone as like most of the rock at Horsetooth Reservoir, and holds a number of very good bouldering problems. This ridge faces the West, therefore is in the shade in the morning hours and in the sun in the afternoon. This area's parking lot is also usually busy for the fact that the shoreline trail start's here and is popular with biker's and hiker's.
The easiest way to get to this area is to refer to directions to Rotary Park. From Rotary Park drive North roughly two miles to a dirt parking lot on the left hand side of the road [immediately] before a curve in the road that leads you across the third dam. If you reach the dam or are crossing the dam you've gone to far. From the parking lot hike directly West for 25 feet and downclimb a suitable section of the ridge. Head to the South and you will find bouldering [problems] all along this ridge.
The old parking area is closed due to vandalism, illegal drug use, and for protection of natural resourses.
