Description

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.

Indian Country was developed in the late 80's primarily by Kris Solem, Jan MacCollum, & Herb Laeger. Currently there are about ten established routes ranging from 5.9 to 5.12 and 80' to 120' in length. Many are on impeccable dark gray patina and ascend cracks and steep faces.

The hour long approach involves hiking over rugged terrain and boulder hopping but several of the routes are classic!

Getting There

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.

There are many large boulders at the base of the routes which remain shaded for most of the day.
