Whistler's Mother (in context).


This is the broken pinnacle that is obvious to the west as one drives up CO Hwy. 7. From some angles, the summit block appears about ready to tumble. Don't let this dissuade you though, because the rock is actually quite solid, and it has a really unique summit!

Getting There 

Drive 4.45 miles up CO Hwy 7 (from left turn in Lyons). Park in pullout on east side of highway. Cross the road and take a path on the SW side of the tower to the base of the routes.

Climbing Season

Start this route on the left side of the SW face. Climb discontinuous cracks to a 5.7 mantle move on the corner of the pinnacle. Clip a bolt and balance up the slab to the two bolt anchor. Don't forget to climb above the anchor to stand on top, the views are definitely worth it! ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
