Gotta love wildlife in the canyon.

Class IV-V Kayaking MORE INFO >>>


Gore Canyon is an incredible river canyon with thousands of routes waiting to be climbed. There is lots of loose rock on some of the routes, so be careful.

You must be able to kayak or raft class IV-V rapids to get to these cliffs, though the solitude of the canyon is absolutely worth it. Adventure climbing at its best!

Getting There 

Put in the river at the normal put in for Gore Canyon (follow signs just south of Kremmling). Paddle 5 miles of flatwater into the canyon, and after the first real rapid, the cliffs start.
