The Stripe is a nice spot overlooking the river below Silverton. The routes are mostly bolted and up to 90' tall. Access the upper tier by scrambling up from the left.

Getting There 

From Silverton, drive south on US Hwy 550 past the gas station and mineral creek and take your first left on CR 31. Drive about a mile to the end of the road and park at the old mill. Walk the rest of the old road and take a right on a faint trail before the mud bog.

CR 31 not marked, but just past creek. 1.1 mi on good dirt road to 2nd set of old mining buildings, past gate (open, no private property signs). From there, 5 min walk to crag.

Does anyone know if the 5.13a Project on the right side of the upper wall is "red tagged"? Or is it open to an FA?

Found a bail biner on the upper tier yesterday, most likely someone here in town? Stop in the Great Divide Cafe & Frozen Yogurt shop to identify and claim it, otherwise it will become booty.
