enjoying the view

Any thoughts on living down in the Cortez/Dolores area? Any good local crags or gyms? Much in the way of a climbing community in the area without going all the way to Durango?

from experience:
Cortez = don't; Abbey had it right about being a ass-backward cow town
Dolores/ Mancos = much, much better.
some bouldering around dolores; not much at all in the vicinity of Cortez - a few routes in town but all are not very good. Durango is your best bet-- or telluride, but it looks like you are from there. i haven't lived there i awhile, but when i did, the climbing community was not very active or big. many more boaters and skiers. We usually travelled to get any decent rock.

Yellow jacket canyon is nearby.
But it is kinda out of the way.

I was just lookin at a commercial property in Mancos to possibly buy and was wondering the same thing about climbing areas near by.

There's a gym in Durango (The Rock Lounge), there's bouldering/crack climbing in the valley of the ancients. The Creek is 1-2 hours away. The black is probably 5ish hrs away. There is tons of cragging and bouldering in/around Durango.
