Home to two of the finest sport routes on Independence Pass--as well as one of area's best looking open projects--Wild Rock is a crag not to miss. The harder routes on the east face get morning sun and afternoon shade.

Getting There 

Park on the right side of the road approximately a 1/4 mile before the upper boulderfield (1/2 mile past mile marker 52). Cross the highway, pick up a small path through the woods, and head up the talus above to the obvious giant boulder sitting on the hillside.

Wild Thing 5.13a 7c+ 29 IX+ 29 E6 6c  CO : Independence Pass : ... : Wild Rock
This is another Pass classic at the grade. Steep, juggy climbing up a corner leads to a cool roof encounter and a good rest after the crux. A few more technical moves gain the chains. This is a great antidote to the generally thin climbing on the Pass....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
