Description

A varied climbing experience on Dakota Sandstone. This crag doesn't see a lot of traffic and the routes can be a little dirty. There are sport routes, mixed routes, and some cracks. Most are one pitch in the 40-60ft range, somewhere around 30 climbs in total.

Getting There

From the parking area, hike through the bouldering area to a large Ponderosa. From there, follow a trail that leads up the hill to the base of the right side of the cliff near Fringe Dweller.

To whomever bolted the slab on the far right side of the cliff, it's called Coyote Trickster, it was very X rated. As info around Durango is sparse, and the revolving population is what it is, I'm not surprised. Having said: kind of a drag. Maybe we should put our heads together one of these days, area climbers.
