Description 

The best stuff at Mill Creek Wall starts in the 11+/12- realm, and there are quite a few. Most start around the corner from the big slab, onto a loose scree slope. There is fixed line that will keep you from falling into Mill Creek 100 feet below. It is Dakota Sandstone, so beware of choss/it is not heavily trafficked. Most routes were bolted by local climbing legends Antoine Savelli and Jim Hurst, with a couple added by Wylder Wilson and Damon Johnston.

Getting There 

Drive one mile out of the town (Telluride) heading west, and across from the gas station make a right (north) on to Mill Creek Road (637). Continue up and west, then it switchbacks east. Park at the Mill Creek/Deep Creek trailhead. Head up the trail, cross the bridge, and head up to the wall. The approach time is approximately 20-30 minutes (0.8 miles) from the trailhead.
