Description

The best stuff at Mill Creek Wall starts in the 5.11/5.12 realm. Most start around the corner from the big slab, onto a loose scree slope. There is fixed line that will keep you from falling into Mill Creek 100 feet below. It is Dakota Sandstone, so beware of loose rock.

Getting There

Drive one mile out of the town (Telluride) heading west, and across from the gas station make a right (north) on to Mill Creek Road (637). Continue up and west, then it switchbacks east. Park at the Mill Creek/Deep Creek trailhead. Head up the trail, cross the bridge, and head up to the wall. The approach time is approximately 20-30 minutes (0.8 miles) from the trailhead.
