Description

This is an area probably best known for its ice/mixed climbing opportunities in the vicinity of Kennedy's Gulch, Gravity's Rainbow, Abraxas, and Blue Condition. Apparently, the rock can be inviting for the adventurous even when the ice is long gone. The rock certainly has looseness rivaling many an alpine area, so beware.

Apparently, at least 2 rock climbs, Texas Wheelchair Massacre and Lightline, have been done.

Getting There

Engineer Pass area is located along US 550 south of Ouray by 10-20 minutes depending upon traffic and weather. It lies north of Silverton. The road goes east from US 550 over Engineer Pass to Lake City. In the colder months, the road is closed.
