This is an organizational layer. Pumphouse Falls and 19th Hole aka 19th Fairway are at least 2 of the climbs located here, downhill from the Rigid Designator/Fang amphitheatre.
It is best to exit I-70 at the E Vail exit, about 100 miles W of Denver. Limited parking is available at the pumphouse which is found by going W after you exit the E Vail exit. Follow the road paralleling I-70, which crosses under I-70 and then about a mile further, there is a small building/outhouse, limited parking there. Parking problems abound if there is no room here, find legal parking or be rich.

This may not be 19th Fairway, but something else. We did cross the golf course (aka Nordic tracks in the winter). This ice fall...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
