Thanks, BJ! All the work you guys did up at The Narrows helped inspire the development of this area. Cheers.

After the gate is locked on Land's End, you may still be able to access the areas from CO Highway 65 (I'm not sure where the gate is on top). I was climbing on Paleosol Wall until the end of November, and as long as the temps were in the 50s in GJ, it stays pretty comfortable. Keep in mind locating the rap stations can be more than a little sketchy with snow on the ground!
