The Titanic Climbing Area near Westcliffe, Colorado is currently within the closure zone for the Junkins Wildland Fire. No one will be allowed into this area until the US Forest Service lifts the closure.
The Titanic: A rock 250 fppt tall, about a 1/4 mile long, has an upper and lower tier, (at this time) only the lower half has bolted sport routes. It has 21 routes ranging from 5.7 to 5.12a, (all of which were bolted by Bob and Carrie in the summer of 2001) and two project not yet finished. Most of the routes are in the 5.10 to 5.11 range. A 60 meter rope is needed as some of the routes are 100 feet long. Most of the routes are vertical with small roofs,and big holds(Carrie calls them diagonal washboards). The rock faces west and sits at 8,000feet.
