Hey James, I'm down in the Farmington area and always looking for someone to climb with. Let me know if you are interested. Thanks!

Totally interested, and that's a short trip really. Any spots near Farmington? I'm out of town this weekend but if it's arm would love to get outside in a couple of weekends

I work down in Farmington quite a bit. A lot actually. Anything down there CJK? I would be pumped to me up with anyone who knows of ANY climbing down in the area.

If you ever get over here to durango, hit me up. MWF afternoons + weekends work best for me

Farmington only has some bouldering in the area and a lot more of everything out on the navajo nation. I climb mostly in Durango but also try and get out of town as much as possible. James, let me know when you have days available and maybe we can get together some time.

Hey there. I'm on a roadtrip from Boston and would love to meet up to get on some rock or ice. I am in Boulder right now and need to be in Utah 3/8 so pretty much free anytime in between. I brought lots of gear and rope but left my rack back home. Feel free to shoot me a text or call (applies to anyone who wants to climb!). 518-878-9150 -Dan

Look me up if you want to check out the Pagosa area.

Between Farmington and Ignacio is more bouldering than you can do in a lifetime.
I have been at it for 20 years and still find new places. I can say with confidence I have done over a thousand new problems out there. A few trad lines as well. Most in the 40 ft. range. We call it the Libidozone. Some of it roadside. The real goods involve very little hiking.

Just have to explore and learn to see the good rock from a distance.

If you have access to a boat Navajo reservoir has quite a few good areas.

Stumbled into this awhile back.

mmmm that looks like some nice dakota sandstone, if you're in to bouldering. Kinda like T-Lake. Where is that?

thanks for all the responses guys! Anyone who responded, feel free to email me or text my cell about climbing. I potentially can get out a day this weekend if the weather turns around, otherwise I'll be going to the mountains. Cell is (970) 946-7679.

Just know that you are on Ute land and they do post no trespassing signs as well as enforce that when cars are left on the side of the road. But... there is some hidden gems in the area.

Gonna have to hook up sometime. I just bought some land in Pagosa, was thinking a boat for the reservoir would be cool.

Not so. We climb on BLM land out there. The Ute tribe are very good at posting their land. If not we would be climbing just south of Pagosa Springs. No signs where we are climbing.

Look me up when you get settled in here. Where did you buy your land?
We have a sailboat and know the reservoir well.

Got a nice 3.5 acre lot in Holiday Acres.
We're hoping to sell our place in Steamboat this summer and try and get a big garage/shop built, or at least the foundation in.

Very cool. I have some good friends that live out there. We are on the north side of town on the way to Piedra Canyon.

Ya, we're excited to go somewhere more chill.
Steamboat's just not what it used to be, been here 25 years.
We came really close to getting acreage in Aspen Springs, but decided HA made more sense.
Were headed somewhere in April for a month to climb and bike, if we end up going south, maybe we could hook up for a bike ride and/or beers.

We have 5 acres out in Aspen Springs we bought in 93 for next to nothing. Lived there for years but no longer.

We live right on the Turkey Springs trail system so if the weather holds and it dries out we may be able to ride there. Beers for sure.

So you are climbing on the NM side then correct?
