Description 

This north-facing wall sits up and right above White Mountain Tours on CO Highway 91. Sitting on Forest Service land, this wall of quality granite holds good potential for new routes, both bolted and mixed gear and bolts, with lengths up to 80' in the center of the wall and shorter sections of good rock to either side.

The name is a jest, as all the locals I mentioned the wall to seemed to be unaware of its existence, though once you see it, it is very obvious. I am certain this wall has seen other climbing, as I found one piton high on a difficult-looking face. Please let me know if you have different names or first ascent information for this area.

Getting There 

Access without crossing White Mountain Tours's property involves fording a series of beaver ponds or the stream. Park along the side of the road on a pullout, cross the water, and head up. If you want to stay dry and cross WMT's property, please remember to ask. WMT already graciously hosts the parking for Cecilville Slabs. Let us not wear out our welcome.

The route is straightforward, with 5.6 climbing, solid rock, and great gear, past an admirable pile of guano and to the obvious ledge about 60' up. After that, another 20' of more challenging climbing following the weakness up brings you to the anchors.Both first ascentionists agree that the final 20 feet are not quality and that the anchors should be installed at the top of the first 60' (to finish Guanito). As both have moved from Leadville, that work is open to anyone with the know how and ga...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
