Description Suggest change

Mighty Mouse Wall is an excellent crag on the south side of CO-141 1.8 miles past Divide Road. The cliff is broken by a huge bush covered break halfway up dividing the cliff into two separate and distinctive crags.

Upper Mighty Mouse Wall offers one of the canyons best collections of excellent face climbs, on mixed protection. This area was developed by Matt Lisenby in the early 2000s.

Lower Mighty Mouse Wall offers some older traditional routes, and has seen some more recent developments by Alex Garhart and Co.

Getting There Suggest change

Drive 1.8 miles past Divide Road of CO-141 and park in a large dirt pullout on the right side of the road. The crag is on the left (south) side of the road a few hundred yards back from the pullout. You can approach the crag on BLM land by walking back east from the pullout past 2 telephone poles and cross the fence where the upper wire is removed. From here you can follow cairns to Lower Mighty Mouse or struggle up through scrub oak to Upper Mighty Mouse.
