Telluride Mountain Club members Nate and Ashley Smith took a little day trip to Paradox, Colorado to do a little fall climbing. Paradox is located in Montrose County, just 80 miles from Telluride (approx. 1 hour, 45 minute drive). October and November are popular climbing times for climbing in Paradox. Looking for a great book to help you navigate this area this fall? Try Charlie Fowler’s guidebook, The Wild Wild West.
Approach from the south through the Telluride area on CO 145 northwest to Naturita and then continue west on CO 90.
