Description

These are climbs along the Dolores River downstream of Bedrock.

Sunshine Slabs is an obvious, south-facing slab about 300' above the road about 5 miles (10 minutes) from Bedrock. A well-cairned trail leads up to the center of the slab. The approach time is 15 - 20 minutes.

Getting There

River Road (Y11) goes north from Route 90 just east of Bedrock to 151 just NW of Uravan.
