Teale Tower Rock Climbing
Nearing the end of the 2nd pitch
This south facing cliff has five crack climbs all in the 5.10+ to 5.11 range. Routes are one or two pitches on pretty good granite, though most have seen so few ascents that there are still some some exfoliation flakes that need to be cleaned. There is an easy downclimb on the north/back side.
The rock is located 5.2 miles up the road from the fee station, on the north side of the river. Park at the entrance to Spring Gulch campground, 5.4 miles past the fee station. (Don't park in a campsite, you may get a ticket.) A five to ten minute walk along the north side of the river gets you to the base of the rock.
Climbing Season For the Elevenmile Canyon area.

Starts with thin stemming and laybacking (crux) that widens to hands. Pass an offwidth section (#4 Camalot) with classy stemming and laybacking. Belay at a big ledge. Pitch 2 continues up the corner (5.9 crux about 15...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
