DescriptionThis massive wall dominates the landscape above Grizzly Creek and features some of the best "choss" Glenwood Canyon has to offer with routes up to 700 feet in length.
The Mudwall has a long and storied history, dating back to the 1960s when Layton Kor burned through a number of partners in his forays to the steep, ominous wall. As the story goes, Kor reverted to lying to his partners about what they were climbing, assuring them they were headed to the desert or elsewhere for classic ascents, before turning off the highway at Grizzly Creek, where the Mudwall prominently towers above the canyon.
Getting ThereTake the Grizzly Creek exit (#121) off I-70 in Glenwood Canyon. Park in the large lot on the north side of the interstate, across the interstate from the boat launch.
Hike for 0.9 mile on the Grizzly Creek trail. Shortly after passing a small metal culvert underneath the trail you will encounter a steep section of trail with a square, cube-shaped on the left side of the trail. Here, a large, old logjam has recently been cut up but a reasonably safe and easy passage can be found across the creek. On the other side of the creek, head uphill and into a large scree field where you can follow cairns to the base of the wall.
