Having some fun on the Streaked Wall.


This is one of the more difficult walls in the Telluride area, the place to go if you are looking for 5.11 sport routes. Routes range from 5.10- to 5.13- (with one 5.7). The rock is Telluride conglomerate, but has a bit of a limestone feel to it on certain routes.

Getting There 

On the hike up, take the faint trail up and to the left (East) just before the somewhat permanent snowfield that lies to the left of the Main Wall. This wall has obvious large streaks.


There are 27+ routes as of 2016.

A. Hooking Lessons, 11+, 1p, 75', bolts.
C. Superfund Site, 11, 1p, 70-', bolts.
D. Fool's Gold, 12-, 1p, 105', bolts.
E. Eldorado, 11+, 1p, bolts.
F. Gray Matter, 11, 1p, bolts.

Somebody stole two of my quickdraws at the Streaked Wall. That's the way you thank me for bolting all those new lines there for you?
