Description

The unique rock on these routes is unlike typical Unaweep granite. It is fractured at sharp angles and forms a flat wall with overhangs and roofs. As with almost all unaweep rock, some small features are still loose – use caution, a helmet is recommended. All of these routes require some traditional climbing gear! The wall is shady in the summer until around 1 o’clock. Routes 1-3 share the same anchor, which could be accessed for top-roping.

Getting There

The approach: Drive 1.8 miles west of the divide road on Hwy 141. The crag is located on the south(left) side of the road. Park in a large pull-out on the north side of the road that is ~ 100 feet past the crag. Find an isolated, small corner of public access over the fence (the top wire of the barbed wire fence is cut) just east of a telephone pole with a yellow, plastic cover over a support wire. Refer to p. 62 KC Baum’s Grand Junction Rock Guide for route info on the lower crag and a good orientation picture. Generally, the trail goes left across a small wash for ~ 100 yards before making subtle uphill switchbacks, then crosses a scrub oak area and heads uphill again (steep) towards a weakness in a short cliffband. Past the cliffband go uphill again ~100 feet, then rising left towards the crag across loose scree and dirt. The approach accesses the cliff from the right at route #1.
