Description 

The Gable lies above the North side of Odessa Lake and consists of several fins, spires, and low-angle buttresses.


Getting There 

The best way to approach The Gable is from Bear Lake. Head to Lake Helene, then drop down to Odessa. When you parallel the outlet for Lake Odessa, bushwhack down through the trees 60 feet. You should be very near the lake's outlet, and a hiker's trail can be found. Take the hikers trail along the lake to the North and West. After 0.1 miles, or about the middle of the lake, you'll find a small inlet stream. A faint trail exists to the east of this which is difficult to pick up at first. You may have to negotiate around downed trees, but continue up adjacent to this small drainage, and it will turn into a talus field within about 5 minutes of hiking. From the talus, the cliff is directly in front of you. Angle up and right to base, then right along base to "The Rasp". It took us 1.5 hours to approach, it may be a little longer if you don't know the area.

This route is on a couple of miles northeast of Notchtop. Approach as for Notchtop, but continue down to Odessa Lake. From the Odessa Lake outlet, look up (northwest) and see an obvious, flying buttress - this is the route. It's the same rock as Notchtop, so expect the odd creaky flake and spaced gear. It is very sunny, so dress lightly. 1) 5.9+ s, 190 feet. The left side of the buttress has 3 parallel grooves. Climb the left hand of these for about 100 feet, and then step right 10 feet and ta...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
