DescriptionThis crag has a very interesting, conglomerate rock type. There are rocks poking out from the wall ranging from the size of a thumb to a basketball, and they are solid! The best way I can describe it is like a bunch of rocks placed as holds on cement.
I strongly recommend checking this place out at least once, and it's only about 30 minutes from Gunnison, or Lake City. Stop on the way to God's Crag.
All climbs with anchors are sport routes; however, there is potential for some trad leads.... It is very rare to see anyone here, probably because no one knows about and there are only about 15 climbs. This is a south-facing wall, so it gets sun all day.
Also, if you visit the wonderful Rock 'n Roll sports on US-50 in Gunnison you can get a hand drawn guide sheet for $0.50. They can also give you beta for this area and all others in the area.
Getting ThereTake CO 149 south from Gunnison to about 4 miles south of Powderhorn. At mile marker 97, turn East on CR-38 [CR 58?] (left if coming from Gunnison). There will be a sign for Indian Creek Road and you'll cross a cattle guard right away.
Drive 2.9 miles from CO-149 on CR 58 to a 5-6 car pull off on the left-see photo (about 100 yds before the 3rd cattle guard). Walk about 200 feet down the road to a 4x4 road that goes west (right). Follow the 4x4 road about 200-300 yards to a small 2-car pull off then follow the trail another 200 feet to the southwest to the climbing.
It is a 10 minute hike from pull-off for cars.
