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.

Silver Stage 5.10c 6b 20 VII E2 5b  CO : Silverton area : ... : Goldrush Area
This is a decent climb on wide slab/ramp RIGHT of the Gold Rush ice climb. It is well-protected and in a beautiful location. There is some loose rock on pitches 3 & 4. (I don't suggest climbing under other parties.) Silver Stage starts on right side of slab; it goes for 3 pitches up slab; the fourth pitch works its way up buttress above slab. Pitch 1 - 5.10c.Pitch 2 - 5.8/9.Pitch 3 - 5.8/9 R. This goes up a Class 3 gully (2 bolts) to short 8-10' section of 5.8/9 (2 bolts...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
