Description 

This is the smaller cliff located out right (east) of the main Ophir Wall. This is home to a few good single pitch routes. It is west-facing, so it is cooler early and sunnier later in the day.

Getting There 

From the Ophir Wall parking area, enter the boulderfields below the wall and traverse to the far right staying relatively low. It takes approximately 15 minutes.

This is as good as sport climbing gets in the Telluride area. Starting already one pitch off the deck, cast off from a ledge halfway up a beautiful, unyielding wall. Goldrush can be characterized as pure endurance climbing. From overhanging jug hauling low on the route, the grips get smaller, and the climb lessens in angle. A long crux of sidepulling and gastoning at the top is tiring, and the final moves to the anchor are quite testing to those who lack impeccable technique.Note: Sometimes...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
