Description [Edit]

There are excellent crags in the Dolores River canyon with sandstone towers and walls rising from the Dolores River.

Getting There [Edit]

There are two climbing areas in the Big Gypsum Valley area - this is the lower one on the banks of the Dolores River. From Naturita, drive towards Slickrock and turn onto Road 20R - this is a good dirt road and there should a be a sign for a Dolores River launch site. From the pavement, it's about 13 miles to the climbing areas.
