Per Bryan Gall: the Poison Ivy Wall is located on the west side of No Name Creek approached by crossing the creek at the bridge and walking the utility road back downstream towards the obvious cliff band. Silver Doors cut into the cliff for Glenwood Springs' water diversion facility. Up and to the right of The Doors is the Poison Ivy Wall.

Per Michael Schneiter:


The Itch, 9, 1p, 85', gear.
Sumac, 9, 1p, 60', gear.
Kor Line aka Poison Ivy aka Garden Salad, 9-, 1p, 60', gear.
Twin Cracks aka Railroad Cracks, 8, 1p, 50', gear.
The Sickle, 10, 1p, 60', gear.
Lightning Bolt Cracks, 10, 1p, 50', gear.
?Afro Samurai?, 2p, 200', bolts & gear.

Obscurity 11, 11, 1p, 60', gear.

Getting There 

These routes either start on the road just right of the large, silver door that is part of the Glenwood water system or from the trail along the wall.

More details are to be edited in later.

Looking up the first pitch from the belay stance.

Afro Samurai 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b  CO : Glenwood Springs : ... : Poison Ivy Wall
The route heads up the natural line on the obvious crack just right of the dihedral of the face of the west side climbs and the main canyon face. We put in an anchor at the top of the first pitch, and there are lots of natural choices at the top of the second pitch. The second pitch follows up and to the right along a natural feature. There is potential to continue past the second pitch. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
