Here is a fun, little-known side canyon that offers some surprisingly quality, easy bouldering in a cool, desert environment. I had originally posted this canyon as Little Wash, because this is what the people that first took me up here called this place, but after looking more closely at the topo myself, I am certain that this canyon is called Big Wash. Regardless, Big Wash is an awesome canyon, one that is worth exploring regardless of whether you go climbing or not. An explorative class 3 scramble up this canyon leads to a box canyon and a cool waterfall about 2 miles back. In the winter, this spot is surrounded by elegant ice cascades. In the spring, it is a muddy plunge pool.
From Grand Junction, head east on I-70. In Debeque Canyon, take exit 49. Follow CO Highway 65 for 0.8 miles to a big pulloff on the right at the mouth a large side canyon. This is Big Wash.
