The Narrows River Wall wall is beautiful and worthy in its own right. There is good hard river-polished rock here and certainly more potential for cool routes.

Getting There 

The wall is found just downstream of Greedy Gulch and just upstream of The Keep. Driving up the canyon, park at the dirt pullout on the left side of the road and you will be looking right at it. When the river is low, you can walk right across just a little upstream in knee to ankle deep water to the dry beach. If the river is frozen, then just walk 50 feet from your car.

This line follows the prominent, yellowish arête through some fun, unfractured, river-polished stone. The route is actually slightly overhanging in sections making the slopey ledges a bit more exciting than they might seem. There are some critical little holds and sidepulls to look for near the top. Do not climb into the gully full of lichen on the left....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
