No Problems


This is a beautiful sandstone canyon that tightens as you head east. There are lots of drainages that have good potential depending on conditions for that year.
I have also known it to have no climbable ice for the entire year.

Getting There 

Drive south from Grand Junction/Whitewater on CO Highway 141 to Gateway. Stay on CO 141 into Gateway Canyon. The canyon has potential for about 50 miles to Naturita.

Climbing Season

For the CO Ice & Mixed area.

This is great climb for a beginner lead climber ready to take that next step into moderate terrain. It would also be a great place for moderate lead climbers to take their friends who want to try ice climbing. Would be fun toproping, has a remote feel to it, and the hike in is easy. 5-10 minutes from the car. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
