Millennium Crag lies at the South End of Eldo, almost squarely between Lower Peanuts Wall and the Petite Bastille. This crag is referred to as Millennium Crag by this party who have done some of the existing routes on it. This was due to the initial thought of doing routes on it, which we discussed late in Y2K, before deciding to go for new lines on Sobo and Diamond Head first, and forgetting this crag for a while. In June 2003, we returned to climb on it after being rained out from an alpine day.
Approach as for Peanuts wall, walking up the Rattlesnake Gulch/Fowler trail (preferred), or from the Bastille West-side trail (not preferred). This crag lies perhaps 200 yards West of the Petite Bastille and 300 Yards East of lower Peanuts. After locating it from the access road (Fowler trail), scramble up Talus to reach the lower left end (NE end). From there most route locations will be given. Total approach time was 10-15 min, including the talus scramble of about 5 minutes. To go from climb to climb along the base, walk closely to the cliff line whenever possible and follow in the deep footprints in the soft earth- it is doubtful that any real trail here will ever exist.

The line was initially quite lichened at the first crux, and full of dirt, but this was cleaned by the FA party with good result. A good brushing could still be used, but even in it's current condition, it is a good line.The route is somewhat runout in...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
