The River Chamber Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Topo.
The rock here is pretty good quality granite. This area has a variety of climbs ranging from TR, to trad and sport leads, and one winter mixed route. All routes can be set up as a top rope on good bolted anchors.
This has good protection from most weather in a little canyon running east to west. It is secluded right along the banks of the river.
The routes are short and great for teaching people how to climb or getting in a quick workout.

Slightly north of Buena Vista, turn off of US Hwy 24 onto CR 384 headed east towards the river. Take an immediate right onto CR 384A, and follow to the terminus on a dirt road. Take the dirt road to the left, and when it forks, stay right. Park at a little round about. The trail starts just south of the road and enters the canyon from the west side.

Nice spot with some nice, little routes.
Jess, I see you aren't taking credit for the steep line with the multiple drilled pockets and spray-paint splotches over the bolt hangers
anybody want to own up to that one?
I try to keep an open mind about stuff, but this one strikes me as Not Okay.

There are two dry tool routes down by the river below the rock climbing area. I agree with you though, and I am taking down both those routes next week. Bobby

Be careful not to park on private property. After missing the turnoff west of the crag off 384a, part of my group parked off the road branching off 384a south of the crag and was later greeted by a less-than-pleased armed individual who informed us of the error of our ways.
