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.

Getting There 

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.

At that point, head straight the arete using the slopers and jugs for a solid topout.There is a left-handed lip hold with a great thumb-catch just before going up the arÍte. This really helps getting into the proper position before attempting the final arÍte portion....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
