Description

The rock here is pretty good quality granite. This area has a variety of climbs ranging from TR, to trad and sport leads, and one winter mixed route. All routes can be set up as a top rope on good bolted anchors.

This has good protection from most weather in a little canyon running east to west. It is secluded right along the banks of the river.

The routes are short and great for teaching people how to climb or getting in a quick workout.

Climbs from left to right:

Kickapoo, 5.9+, sport.
Gustofer, 5.8, trad.
Snuffleuffagus, 5.8, trad.
Hooked on Crystal, 5.10+, sport.
G-Hab, 5.9, trad.
Dirty Mike, 5.7, trad.
Huha, 5.8, trad.
Shenanagins 5.9, trad.
Nagini, 5.10-, trad.
Spank You Very Mucho, 5.11, trad.
With Love to Chilé, 5.9, trad.
Wanderlust, 5.10, trad.

Getting There

Slightly north of Buena Vista, turn off of US Hwy 24 onto CR 384 headed east towards the river. Take an immediate right onto CR 384A, and follow to the terminus on a dirt road. Take the dirt road to the left, and when it forks, stay right. Park at a little round about. The trail starts just south of the road and enters the canyon from the west side.
