Eureka area Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Eureka Pillar.
This area takes its name from an old mining settlement that went by the name, Eureka. It's home to a couple prominent 500'+ walls.
To get to the Eureka area, head north out of Silverton on CR 2 for about 9-10 miles (improved 2WD dirt road - in summer; 4WD in winter). Drive's 20-30 mins. from Silverton. Lots of dispersed camping up here on old mining land. Very avalanche prone in the winter.
