One of the many areas up in and around 16 Road. If...


This area follows 16 Road in Fruita up into the Bookcliffs. There are plenty of areas and places to check out here with a variety of rock quality. Most of what we found wasn't stellar (no surprise there), but if you're looking for a new and different experience with potential for first ascents, this might be for you.

Getting There 

Head to Fruita. Once there, turn left by the Walgreens, follow the road (which is parallel to I-70), and then turn right onto 16 Road. Keep driving until it turns into a gravel/dirt road. Boulders will start popping up.

Once we get more specific directions we'll post them, but everything we went to was right off the road.
