DescriptionThe "Wild Wild West" is a remote area of western Colorado near Naturita. With no nearby population centers, climbing in this area is wide open. Most of the rock is sandstone, with everything from short crags to pinnacles to long sandstone cracks.
The best source of information on this area is Charlie Fowler's guidebook, The Wild Wild West.
Getting ThereApproach from the south through the Telluride area on CO 145 northwest to Naturita and then continue west on CO 90.
From Grand Junction head south on CO 141 through Unaweep Canyon.
From the the Moab / Indian Creek area, head south on UT 191 to UT 46 east which becomes CO 90.
Unfortunately Charlie Fowler's excellent website is gone. Here's a link to the archive of it: web.archive.org/web/2006120…
