The Master's Wall is a nice little sport crag situated in a beautiful, alpine valley. There are around 15 quality routes ranging from 5.9 to 5.12. Most routes are 80 to 100 feet. The rock is hard gneiss with incut edges, sidepulls and rails making for a technical and fun climbing experience.

Getting There 

From 550 go through Silverton and turn right on CR 2 toward Howardsville. After about 4 miles you will cross the Animas River and take a right on CR 4 toward Stony Pass and Cunningham Gulch. Keep going past the turnoff to Stony Pass and continue through a broad valley. When the road forks right to cross the creek, take the left fork and park. Midway between the fork and end of the road find a trail that winds up a erosion gully to the crag. 10 minutes.
