Description

The Master's Wall is a nice little sport crag situated in a beautiful, alpine valley. There are around 15 quality routes ranging from 5.9 to 5.12. Most routes are 80 to 100 feet. The rock is hard gneiss with incut edges, sidepulls and rails making for a technical and fun climbing experience.

Getting There

From 550 go through Silverton and turn right on CR 2 toward Howardsville. After about 4 miles you will cross the Animas River and take a right on CR 4 toward Stony Pass and Cunningham Gulch. Keep going past the turnoff to Stony Pass and continue through a broad valley. When the road forks right to cross the creek, take the left fork and park. Midway between the fork and end of the road find a trail that winds up a erosion gully to the crag. 10 minutes.

We visited in late June, and the base of the cliff was still covered in a lot of snow. Made for some not that enjoyable belay spots for the first three climbs.

On that note, the aspect allows for not much sun. Goes into the sun around 3pm. Great morning cragging. Jun 28, 2017
If you see draws on sport climbs, please leave them! They are not booty and are not yours to take. Use them if you want, don't abuse them, and leave them hanging when you're done. Tired of going up to my project for all the draws to be gone. Let's respect our fellow climbers and adhere to this simple ethic! Sep 4, 2017
