Bat Cave

Colorado > Grand Junction… > Unaweep Canyon > Nine Mile Hill > Late Bloomer Boulder…

Description

The Bat Cave has a great overhanging roof with some known problems and some potential as well. It's always dry due to its steepness, so it's a great year round boulder. The area is a little more trafficked due to hikers and folks coming to look at the petroglyphs in the area, but it's not bad at all.

Getting There

Follow map for directions.

Past the railroad tracks, turn right into the parking lot right before you cross the bridge. Follow the obvious trail up the hill and past a cluster of boulders on the right side. Once you've passed the boulders on the right, look up and right to see the Bat Cave. Hike up the "steep" hill.
