Mighty Mouse Wall is an excellent crag on the south side of CO-141 1.8 miles past Divide Road. The cliff is broken by a huge bush covered break halfway up dividing the cliff into two separate and distinctive crags.

Upper Mighty Mouse Wall offers one of the canyons best collections of excellent face climbs, on mixed protection. This area was developed by Matt Lisenby in the early 2000s.

Lower Mighty Mouse Wall offers some older traditional routes, and has seen some more recent developments by Alex Garhart and Co.

Getting There 

Drive 1.8 miles past Divide Road of CO-141 and park in a large dirt pullout on the right side of the road. The crag is on the left (south) side of the road a few hundred yards back from the pullout. You can approach the crag on BLM land by walking back east from the pullout past 2 telephone poles and cross the fence where the upper wire is removed. From here you can follow cairns to Lower Mighty Mouse or struggle up through scrub oak to Upper Mighty Mouse.

We got lost looking for a warmup on the lower wall. The trail for the left part of lower wall diverges left from the main trail below the Magna Mater Spire. We missed this and did some bushwhacking from the Magna Mater Spire. Once at the lower left wall, it seemed tough for us to reach the mid part of it, so we thought perhaps it could be accessed from a trail above...not the case. We went right of the Magna Mater Spire and up a well-cairned, steep talus that lead to Chimneying 101 and climbs to the right. More bushwhacking got us to the Base of Spaceballs. We never climbed the lower wall but Creeps and Bleeps was pretty fucking cool. For Scrappy Mouse to Nice Surprises (left side), I'm assuming once at the base from the lower left trail, just follow the base of the cliff to the climbs to the center (no obvious trail). The Magna Mater Spire defines the boundary between the Scrappy Mouse to Nice Surprises area (Left side) which one would take the low left trail for and all the climbs to the right which one can stay on the main trail/talus cairned turnoff. If one stays on the main trail and does not head up the talus, it leads to the upper walls.

The large pullout was a little further than 1.8 in my car. From there, we walked up the road towards the wall passing one telephone pole and finding a weakness in the fence with a rock and the main trail heading up.

The main trail leading from 141 to the crags heads east (left) at an obvious, cairned boulderfield. Continue east to access Elysium and Chimneying 101 area. The trail to the left routes (Scrappy Mouse, etc) goes down hill from the Magna Mater Spire for ~150 ft and heads east to the base of All Your Mite.

Was in Grand Junction this past week and thought we'd stop by to do some face climbing on Upper Mighty Mouse. First of all, this area is great! It needs more traffic.

The pullout/telephone pole entrance are easy to find. However, the trails are difficult to follow. Pay attention closely.
