Description

Rito Alto Lake is a beautiful backcountry area with plenty of great alpine climbing potential. The rock is mix of gneiss and conglomerate.

Getting There

From Westcliffe, follow County Road 160 (high clearance FWD) to the end of the road at Hermit Pass. Park there, and descend into the bowl and valley.

If approaching from the west, head up Rito Alto Trail #745.

Some climbing can be easily tied into a backpacking trip in the area.
