Description [Suggest Change]
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.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
The Titanic is at mile marker 18, on Co.96, (8.3 miles west of Wetmore). The trail starts at the third green post, up hill from mile marker 18. Even though the rock is only 150 meters from the highway, it is best to use the trail as the vegitation is thick, with a stream crossing.
