The Torture Chamber area is both bouldering and short top ropes. There are some well known classics, but to be fun you can climb up all over the ridge to set a top rope. Primarily bouldering at the top of the ridge, then as working down the ridge towards S-Crack and Nemisis Tower more TR due to height (25-30 ft). Classics include the Torture Chamber traverse, Borgman's Bulge, and S-Crack(TR).
From the intersection of Harmony and Taft Hill in SW Fort Collins, drive 1.8 miles west on Harmony to a dirt pull-off on the right before you come to the dam. The ridge that is in front of you and running back downhill and east is the Torture Chamber area.

Variations exist, probably all with a FA by Gill too, using smaller holds for the hands and keeping the feet higher. All the variations make the problem more difficult. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
