Description 

This area takes its name from an old mining settlement that went by the name, Eureka. It's home to a couple prominent 500'+ walls.


Getting There 

To get to the Eureka area, head north out of Silverton on CR 2 for about 9-10 miles (improved 2WD dirt road - in summer; 4WD in winter). Drive's 20-30 mins. from Silverton. Lots of dispersed camping up here on old mining land. Very avalanche prone in the winter.

I'm told by a Silverton local that there's some loose rock in spots, but well worth climbing. I first learned of this route after seeing this article www.climbing.com/exclusive/features/245gold/index.htm>>>>> by Durango climber, Jared Ogden. He listed this route as a Grade III.Per Gary N:Pitch 1 - there are 9 bolts with a 2 bolt anchor and chains.
