The Weston Wall is located 6 miles up Weston Pass from US Highway 24 (Leadville side...). The wall is up the aspen and sage slope (about 10 minute hike) on the left side of the road.
The Weston Wall is a South-facing crag between 10,700'-11,000'. It is a beautiful setting for all day climbing spring-fall. There are 6 new routes on white granite with diorite knobs scattered about. It is very similar to the granite on Independence Pass. There are a few potato chip flakes here and there, but it is cleaning up quite nicely. The routes follow flake, seam, and crack systems, so plan on placing some gear. All routes required some bolts for protection. There are fixed anchors and each route's end.
