Mill Creek Wall Rock Climbing
Mill Creek Wall as seen from Mill Creek Bridge.
The best stuff at Mill Creek Wall starts in the 5.11/5.12 realm. 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 loose rock.
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.

This is the first route on the left side wall (the side with a steep ground), it goes through a roof.This route starts about 20 feet to the right of Ar'vi Donc. It is a fun route, however, a bit contrived, as it is much easier if you us the dihedral (and all of its subsequent holds) all the way up to the chains. Pull the first roof on massive jugs, and either use the face holds (more difficult) or stem to the holds on the dihedral to get to the second roof. You can either use the fi...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
