Access Issue: Open with restrictions - Private Property Details
The Idarado Mine owns large portions of land, including the access road, that they have been kind enough to maintain partially and allow the public to use. Obey the rules and keep a low profile to ensure continued access.
Climb starts easy through a bad layer of rock before the first bolt, then Telluride conglomerate. The face is much steeper than it looks, so keep moving! Blaze through a roof up high and soon you'll be at the chains. This route is quite a pump-fest for the grade.
This is the 6th route down the pipeline. Starting on the face below the gigantic, bulbous roof 100+ feet up (not part of the climb).
Bolts to chains. 60m rope gets you up and down just fine.
