Description

Cement Creek/CB South offers numerous sport, mixed and traditional crags from 1-3 pitches on three different rock types. Many of the routes are south facing making it an ideal destination for cooler days.

Many of the crags are published in the book "Gunnison Rock" by Leo Malloy.

Climbers are slowly updating some of the ancient hardware in the area, and with an abundance of unexplored rock- there is certainly room for more development.

Cement Creek is certainly not destination climbing, but a quiet and beautiful setting with a few local classics!

Getting There

From Crested Butte: Drive south on CO Hwy 135 for approximately 8 miles. Turn Left (East) on Cement Creek Road (FR740). Follow Cement Creek Road into the canyon. The first and most obvious crag is "The Caves Wall"- the large gray caves of Leadville limestone visible on the hillside to the left of the pullout at ~1.5 miles.
