Description 

South Camp Road wraps around the base of some desert hills in the Redlands of West Grand Junction. The hills are home to many sandstone boulders and some other popular climbing areas such as Dynamite Shacks and Bullet Hole Boulders. Many trails wind through these hills, and they are a popular biking/hiking/running destination for locals.

The rock quality varies. The lighter colored sandstone tends to be soft and sometimes unclimbable. The darker Dakota Sandstone is strong but sharp.

A lot of the boulders are very close to housing. The land beyond the housing development is currently owned by the City of Grand Junction which has allowed its recreational use by visitors; however, it is not protected as park at this time. As such, climbers should be respectful of the area and to homeowners to keep the area open for recreational use. Keep the areas around the boulders clean and avoid cutting new trails when possible.


Getting There 

If arriving on I-70, take exit 28 for 24th Rd toward Redlands Parkway. At the traffic circle, take the 1st exit onto 24 Rd. Continue straight onto Redlands Parkway. Continue onto S. Broadway. Turn left onto South Camp Rd. The desert hills will be along the left of the road.
