Start up the low-angle face past seven bolts to a chain anchor. Repeat two more times to the top and then do three 30 meter raps back down the way you came. A good cruiser that is thoughtfully bolted. Couldn't find a definite crux. Any two of the pitches can be easily combined.


This is the 11th route down the Pipeline Wall. Look for a large pine tree up on a ledge. The route is just to the right of the tree.


7 draws total and a locker or two for the belays.
Great route for beginner climbers to follow. Excellent choice for your first multi-pitch. All you need is one 60 meter rope for this climb and for Skyline Arete directly to the right of Ame's Way. This route is well bolted, good anchors. Very fun. Great view of the Telluride Valley from the ledge at the top of the 3rd pitch. Shares the 3rd pitch anchors with Skyline Arete. Recommended route.

Great views. A nice addition is to walk off the top of the route. The top of this cliff band is the via ferrara and is a very skinny trail along the cliff with a bolted cable to anchor slings into on the thinnest parts. If you head towards Telluride on the via Ferrara instead of back towards the switchbacks, the trail eventually becomes non-existent and you traverse the cliff on steel steps while locked into a cable with safety chains. Tons of fun with great views. Sep 10, 2012

If you want a really fun moderate outing, climb the first 2 pitches of Ame's Way, and at the last bolt of the second pitch, traverse 10 feet to the right to an anchor. Then climb the final pitch of Skyline ArĂȘte, which is one of the best pitches of climbing I have done. This bypasses the stout for the grade roof cruxes on both climbs. Jun 11, 2014

I would say that the crux is probably in the third pitch but is avoided by going to the left and climbing the corner for an easier variation. This is a great route! Jul 14, 2014
