This compact wall has a good set of mid-grade routes. The setting is pleasant and there is plenty of picnic potential at the base.

The second line, through the shattered roof - neglected.

Start at a flake and head steeply up the wall. Dirty.

The penultimate route on this wall. Also dirty. The lower wall is the crux.

Fingery moves past the first two bolts then it's all over.

Deceptively pumpy for such a short route, high in the grade but still the most popular warm-up here.

A trad route up the crack is high in the grade. Tree belay.

The Arapahoe Connection
A good route with mostly positive holds which somehow feels steeper than the other routes on this wall.

A hard start leads to good holds and a tricky clip above. High in the grade and pumpy too.

Great climbing on jugs through the bulges. Popular and becoming polished.

Start up the slope and climb the wall which is tricky at the top.

A shallow groove gives a popular warm-up. Polished.

A route with just one-hard move but it's a toughie.

The last little route has a reachy move on it that stops many.

The final route on the wall shares a lower-off with the last climb.

The inevitable girdle goes from left to right via the smooth band of rock at two-thirds height. From Modem to E-mail. Not on...
