This crag features 8 routes, extremely close to the road. Unfortunately, the climbs lack in the length department, and most of the crux sections are tough but short lived. It is not the area for a good, sustained pump, but it is good for a quick burn and some trad practice with nothing too stressful.
From the Stultz trailhead, continue south away from Canon City for 1.25 miles. It's close to the road but hard to see, it's off to your right and has power lines running in front of the wall. Just past the wall there is a small one or two car pulloff.
A. Pay Back, 9, 1p, bolts, 30'.
