About Ironclads:

Just west of the highway 72 turnoff as you've headed up the SSV (almost to Allenspark), you'll spy a roadsign for the historic Bunce schoolhouse. Follow the very rough 2x4 (hi-clearance recommended) road up 1/8 mile past the only left fork on the road, and take one of the dirt tracks uphill (they tend to send you up and back to the north). When you've gone far enough, the rocks will probably be obvious from the other climbers' vehicles. A better description is found in the Estes Park (Valley) guide book. Several decent bolted routes in the 7-10 range are found here, perfect for a leader to set up TRs for someone not wanting to do harder or multipitch climbs.
