Temporary Access Impediment MORE INFO >>>


This small cliff only has two routes on it, but it is well worth the approach. Though nowhere near as famous, the exposure on Spanish Silver is mildly reminiscent of routes like The Edge of Time in Estes Park and Jolt/Dolt at Rumney.

Getting There 

About 1⁄4 mile from the wastewater plant along the right (eastern) set of tracks is a white, crushed car. Immediately uphill from this car, about halfway up the scree slope, is a small buttress with two routes on it. The first, Spanish Silver, is visible from the railroad tracks while Tango Crack is tucked up on the lefthand side of the buttress.

Climb up to a single bolt on the slab (use a stick clip or place gear early), then follow good gear for 45' before pulling onto the final headwall. Execute some tricky face moves up the headwall (3 bolts), staying close to the sharp arete for maximum exposure....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
