This area is right off the popular Fire Tower Trail, hence the name. The formation is a ridge of rock that runs east and west. Tourist Wall is the southeast side of the ridge. Tourist Wall faces south and gets some sun but is shaded by large trees.

Getting There 

There are two easy ways to get to the wall. One was is to take the main Fire Tower Trail. After you pass the halfway point of the main trail, look for the large wall on your right with many cracks going up it. Follow the wall around to the climber's left and go down the hill. The climbs are within a hundred feet or less of the main trail. The other way to the wall is to take the old Fire Tower Trail to Unicorn Valley. Once you get to Unicorn Valley, follow the wall climber's right around the corner and up the hill a few hundred feet to the wall.

For such a short climb, this packs a punch with several distinct cruxes. It has underclings, slopers, big moves, sidepulls, super balancey mantel, and a short slab to finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
