DescriptionThis is a hidden gem in 10 Mile Canyon. It is secluded, but there is still some I-70 noise. There are a few climbs on the typical granite for the area and a few that are on some other rock (I am not sure what to call it).
A. Ants On A Log, 10, 1p, 50', bolts?
B. Ants In Your Pants, 11, TR.
C. ALBOE, 10, 1p, 50', bolts or TR?
D. Mainstreet, 10-, 1p, 50', bolts.
E. Right of Main, 12?, 1p, TR.
Getting ThereJust after the West Frisco exit on I-70, look for the remains of the Excelsior Mine. Pull off and park next to the tailings. Walk West at the bottom of the tailings and look for the path to the top of the tailings pile. Continue West and look for a trail somewhat hidden by forest growth. This old miner's trail switchbacks up the side of the hill. If you miss the trail, it becomes an unpleasant scramble. At some point towards the top, the switchbacks stop and the trail heads more directly up. Keep your eyes open on the left for the still mostly hidden wall. Cairns mark the way. The trail needs improvement! Some mine cave-ins have made the miner's trail hard to follow. Keep moving/scrambling uphill and you will arrive after about 15 minutes of bushwhacking.
