Description

The Narrows is generally considered the portion of the canyon from Stove Prairie Road to The Narrows Campground. This section of the canyon is characterized by large, steep walls coming right down to the asphalt. People have been climbing here since the '70s, and the climbing history has been re-written time and time again.

The variety of climbing styles, quality of rock, and accessibility make this one of the best locations for rope climbing in the canyon.

Here is a list of the major areas from downstream to upstream:

- Electric Ocean
- Yankee Doodle Slab
- The Trough
- Eden area
- The Nod
- Eve's Cave
- Snake Eyes Wall
- Twilight Area
- Last Turn Crag
- The Beach
- Narrowslab
- Supercollider Area

Getting There

The Narrows is located west of Fort Collins in the Poudre Canyon. Drive approximately 18.1 miles from Ted's Place (a.k.a. the intersection of US Highway 287 and CO 14) to reach the Electric Ocean and the start of The Narrows.
