Description [Suggest Change]

The "Decade Wall" and "Tombstone Wall" are located directly above (south) of the Gunnison Mountain Park Picnic Area. The climbing consists of bolt protected climbs of up to three pitches on interesting edgy, sometimes dirty, metamorphic rock.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

3.2 miles East of Almont is the well signed Gunnison Mountain Park picnic area. Locate the prominent Tombstone feature (the very clean steep-looking face above the parking lot), and hike up talus and steep trail for approximately 30 minutes to its base.

The Western State Geology department used to have picnics/keggers/parties there in the late '70s. I know the rocks you're talking about. I distinctly remember sitting around slamming beers, playing outdoor darts, and looking up and seeing John Rosholt, who wandered off after a few beers, free soloing, in his Addidas up there. Pictures would help, I wouldn't be at all surprised if he was soloing one of those 5.10 routes. Jun 17, 2011
