Description 

There are many other areas in the monument with climbs that might be best categorized as "other areas." These include Airport Tower, Crack of Noon Tower, Dirty Old Man Tower, Roadside Crags, Devil's Canyon, Fruita Canyon, Wedding Canyon (though you have a couple routes from this area already - Fast Draw, Medicine Man), Hueco Buttress, Super Crack Buttress, and Terra Tower. There are many routes to add but do not match the rocks listed as options for Colorado N. Monument. Some of these are excellent in quality.


Getting There 

Colorado N. Monument other routes are scattered in the monument. From Grand Junction follow the signs to the monument to the South. Many of these are accessed via the Rim Rock Drive or via Colo. Hwy. 340.

Hey Admins,

At what point would it be better to start adding a little more clarity to the "other areas" section? As someone who has routinely gotten the names/locations of towers confused, I would really appreciate it. At the very least, there could be a section for No Thoroughfare Canyon. I would add it, but I have gotten some flak for not knowing what I'm talking about in CNM.

I will work on creating a way to separate the monument into maybe three section based on location. Confusion is partly how the monument works on you though. Hah.
