Description

Coming soon...

[This side of the impressive Black Canyon of the Gunnison is known for its impressive, long routes with warmer temperatures. Despite the canyon's steepness and narrowness, these routes have a brighter ambience than some of the neighboring walls across the water. The one disadvantage to climbing on this side is that access is somewhat longer.

All routes here should be considered adventure climbing with challenging rock, rock quality, route finding, runouts, etc.. Assistance, in the event of the unexpected, is difficult to non-existent. Be prepared.

As with most climbing in the area, poison ivy and ticks are hazards during the non-climbing times of your visits here. Some folks have been even known to wear disposable Tivek suits to avoid these diminuitive demons.

Eds. if you would like to add a description, we can add it, and then change the name of the contributor to yours.]

Getting There

North Chasm View Wall is almost always approached by the Cruise Gully:

"Approach by descending the Cruise Gully. Halfway between the campground and ranger station on the rim, find a path into the woods which is marked with a sign indicating the Cruise Gully. Follow the steep gully down past 2 sets of rappels (often with fixed lines) to where it opens out into bushy talus."

Maybe my comment wasn't clear. Due to mountainproject's missing and inaccurate information, they chose to bypass the Canyon altogether. Sep 28, 2014
Probably best they didn't go any further. Sep 28, 2014

Funny, but the SOB Draw is actually the easiest to find in the entire canyon - the entrance is clearly marked:

Attention admins:

Two people have written me in recent weeks to complain that they wanted to stop by the Black on a climbing trip to do just a route or two, using the MP.com app to navigate. However, the above description does not explain how to get to the SOB gully to find Escape Artist (and Comic Relief, et al.). So, I checked this page to find that, to my surprise, (1) my name is listed as contributing the non-existent "North Chasm View Wall" description, and (2) a bunch of routes accessed by the SOB gully are erroneously listed here under NCVW. That doesn't make much sense--Comic Relief Buttress, et al. are not part of NCVW, are they? I guess from some vantage point it all looks like one wall, but, I've always thought of them as, and the guide has them as a different sector.

Anyway, someone should probably reorganize this section and maybe create a page for SOB Gully, and move the appropriate routes there. Or, add a real description here and make clear that it includes the SOB Gully, and include a description of how to get there. It probably shouldn't be me as much to my dismay, I haven't been to the Black for 4 years and don't have much idea what's going on there anymore....

Thanks. Sep 18, 2014

Justin,

Considering what the black canyon did to your pooper last time, I would run the next time it pulls down your pants... Mar 3, 2004

Yo Dudanonymous,Good point, although he HAS submitted a brilliant description for The Free Nose. Check it out; it nearly sounds possible (except for all those pesky 5.12 sections). Oooh.....The Black, how it beckons yet frightens me.Jason Mar 3, 2004
Yo Dude Levin,So what's the deal with no description of "Stoned Oven", "Air Voyage" and the "Nose". We Know you have sent everything in the Black. More info would be killer. P.S. Slayer Rules! Mar 2, 2004
