Indian Country consists of a series of steep north facing cliffs in the upper northern reaches of Rattlesnake Canyon. The south facing portion of this large expanse of rock is Cactus City and has a few multi-pitch routes.
The shortest approach (but quickest elevation gain)is to veer right off of Rattlesnake Canyon towards the Corral Wall. Pass the base of the Corral Wall and continue into a steep west southwest running boulder strewn drainage. At the top of the ridge lies the easternmost end of Indian Country. Upper Dodge City can easily be seen to the east southeast.
