DescriptionSteep limestone sport climbing is what you will find at the Golf Wall. The routes are not long, in the 50 foot range, but pack a pump. The rock varies in quality. Many of the most popular routes now have permanent chain-draws.
The wall is divided into three sub-areas.
(1) The Girl Scout Wall contains some easier 5.9 - 5.10 routes, and is located on the left end of the wall.
(2)The Country Club Cave contains the highest concentration of harder lines, and is easily located by finding the large cave in the center of the wall. A couple moderate lines are just right of the cave, everything else is 5.12-5.13.
(3)The Right Side has a good mixture of routes ranging in difficulty from 5.10 - 5.12, and is found on the right end of the wall.
Typically the best times to climb at the Golf Wall are fall and spring. However, it is possible to climb on cooler summer days or during warm, dry periods in the winter.
Getting ThereLocated just north of Tamarron Golf Course, approximately 18 miles north of Durango on US 550. Park in a small dirt parking area on the west side of the highway. The climbing will be visible on the opposite (east) side of the road. From the parking, cross the highway to the east side and follow a climber's trail to the crag. About a five minute approach.
