Mill Creek Wall Rock Climbing
Mill Creek Wall as seen from Mill Creek Bridge.
The best stuff at Mill Creek Wall starts in the 5.11/5.12 realm. Most start around the corner from the big slab, onto a loose scree slope. There is fixed line that will keep you from falling into Mill Creek 100 feet below. It is Dakota Sandstone, so beware of loose rock.
Drive one mile out of the town (Telluride) heading west, and across from the gas station make a right (north) on to Mill Creek Road (637). Continue up and west, then it switchbacks east. Park at the Mill Creek/Deep Creek trailhead. Head up the trail, cross the bridge, and head up to the wall. The approach time is approximately 20-30 minutes (0.8 miles) from the trailhead.

After you pull the crux, it's pretty much cruising until the one final move to gain the bulge, after which are the chains. Depending upon your style, body type, etc., the crux moves may constitute an 11- grade....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
