Description Suggest change

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.

Getting There Suggest change

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."
