Description

This peak first caught my eye when I noticed it on a Perry-Mansfield brochure in 1968. Ray Palmer took the photo in 1966 while leading groups into the Zirkel Wilderness. The rock itself is similar to that of "Beer Me" Boulder in Butcherknife Creek or Box Canyon and could be the most solid in the entire Wilderness Area with abundant crack systems which offered good gear placements. I estimate the longest climbs to be about 150-250'.

Getting There

We left the Gilpin Creek trail shortly after it forks off from the Mica Basin trail, crossed Gilpin Creek, and hiked up about 1200 feet to the base.

Keith, thank you for your additions to the database. Much climbing has been done in the Zirkels with almost no documentation. I enjoy seeing what the generations of climbers have done up there. Jul 13, 2017
Thanks, Dustin. Hopefully you can add some more routes. I posted a few photos on the Mt. Zirkel page. Any chance you can draw in your route on one of those pictures? Jul 15, 2017
