Description 

Cactus Park is for the desert sherpas and tough fingered.

Getting There 

Take the left into the park from CO 141, drive 1/2 - 3/4 mile. 4 wheel or walk left up to the bottom of the cliffs, and enjoy the huge area of boulders. The first parking lot on your right is a great place to park if you need to walk, the area is directly left of that parking lot approx. 1/3 mile. The rock can be sharp and brittle, it needs more mileage.

Climbing Season

For the Unaweep Canyon area.

Weather station 16.9 miles from here

Unicorn V4 6B  Colorado : Grand Junction Area : ... : Nomad's Land
Sit start underneath the obvious overhang (just left of Nietzsche's Fingers, moving to the south face) with shallow, left hand jug, right hand on crimp. Get a great left foot (breaking chunks off still though) and your right foot kinda dangles. Pull up for a right hand bump, traverse left. The next is a big move/dyno up to the horn, be easy though, that horn looks questionable, keep solid feet! Move up the belly, and top out....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
