Description

This is a great group of climbs just east of Bridal Veil Falls. It has some of the best views of the valley that can be had in Telluride. Accessible in mid-spring to fall time, the road is closed in that winter, but climbing here then wouldn't be ideal anyways. It can snow in any month of the year, so be careful and have a quick excape plan always. There is not a lot of action in terms of climbing, but the road can be practically overrun by tourist in the festival season.

Getting There

Follow CO 145 through Telluride and out the east end of town. The road will turn to dirt about 1.5 miles outside of town at the Idarado Mine. Follow the dirst road switchbacking for about 2 miles. A highclearance vehicle is ideal. Park two stichbacks above the bottom of the falls in a small, but prominent turn out. Cross the large stream on the bridge leading away from the falls and follow the trail along the cliff face to the climbs. If you can not drive the road, park at the bottom of the road and hike to the turnout and crag.

Per chris berdoulay: Drive or hike until you are at the switchback at the base of the falls. Continue hiking to the next switchback (where it turns back toward the falls). Continue straight through the switchback (hiking away from the falls), over a bridge and toward an old mine. If you find yourself looking over the falls you've gone to far. The wall is past the mine.
