There is an abundance of hikes and climbs spattered across Mount Garfield's barren, otherworldy landscape. Most of the rock is terrible, but there are definite exceptions. It just takes some looking, and often times, some serious hiking to get at.
Exit I-70 at the town of Palisade onto 37 3/10 Road. About one hundred yards south of I-70 you will cross over an irrigation ditch. Make a right on G 7/10 Rd. Go about a mile west on G 7/10 Rd until you are forced to make a right. Head north to a tunnel that leads under I-70 to the trailhead parking area.

This really helps getting into the proper position before attempting the final arÍte portion....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
