The east side of Lemon hosts a number of quality sport routes. The cliff starts small and increases in size as you move upstream. At the tallest section of the cliff, there are a couple of the finest climbs in the canyon - Brady's Route and Holy Grail - among several others. This side of the canyon gets morning shade and afternoon sun.
From the gate at the north end of the reservoir, continue straight up the rocky dirt road for about 1/4 mile to a dirt parking area on the left. Pick up a climbers trail that leads through the trees and follow it for about 15 minutes to the base of the cliff.

Rasta Man!! 5.12+ 7c 28 IX E6 6b CO : Durango : ... : East Side
This is one of the best climbs in Durango that I have ever been on. The climb starts up a slab. At the top of the slab, the climb turns into a slightly overhanging wall. The climber goes through a few steep, overhanging moves, to a confusing roof. Climb past the roof and climb the bolts that are in the rightward direction to the top. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
