Description

Bullet Hole Rock area has a variety of bouldering, top rope problems, and several short lead climbs. The rock is Dakota sandstone and is typically good in quality. There are rarely more than a couple of people here mainly on weekends, but the area does see the occasional group of drunken morons that like to leave broken glass and trash in their wake. Efforts from the Colorado Mesa University's Outdoor Program have aided in keeping the area clean. 

Getting There

From Grand Junction, travel west on Grand Avenue, which turns into Broadway. Cross over two bridges, at the next stop light turn left on to Monument Road, follow the signs to the Colorado National Monument, go approximately 1.75 miles, there will be a large pull off on the right side of the road, past the Tabeguache Trail ~0.25 miles.
