There is a neat, little, sport climbing spot at the historic Camp Hale. It is a bit chossy in spots but fun nonetheless.

Getting There 

Most folks will drive I-70 to the US 24 junction near Minturn, then drive south towards Leadville. You will pass the Gilman Canyon area. Camp Hale is north of Leadville and just east of US 24.

Warrior's Wail 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  CO : Leadville : ... : Warrior's Wall
This route is better than it looks from the ground, as long as you don't mind a touch of choss. The rock is more solid than it appears, but the rating of 5.9 is a bit inflated. It felt more like a low 5.8 or maybe even a high 5.7 to most in our party. Then again, we started via the ramp to the left, which certainly makes it easier than trying to do the direct start.
