This area is the gem of Taylor Canyon. Although limited in quantity, the rock quality and setting is hard to beat.

Spring and fall are the best both for conditions and avoiding the campers. If you do climb during the camping season, please be respectful to all those visiting i.e. space, noise, etc.

Getting There 

The campground is 14 miles from Almont on the east side of the road. Park in the large parking lot directly opposite the campground on the west side of the road. The longest approach is maybe 10 minutes. Most problems sit in or around the campground.

Excellent rock quality. Anarchy is a must-do for the Gunnison Valley.
