Keep on Trails, Som areas are wilderness and cannot be bolted on.

Description 

This is a large area to the north west of the Colorado National Monument. This area is a National Conservation area that is quite expansive. Kodel's, Devil's, and Rattlesnake Arch Canyons are all in this area. Most routes require a healthy approach. And, dogs are allowed!


Getting There 

Head Northwest on I-70 exiting at Fruita (exit 19). Head towards the Monument entrance, but take a right on King's View Drive. Head through the neighborhood and onto where it becomes a dirt road. Continue to the large parking lot for Devil's Canyon and further on for other canyons.

Pitchfork Tower - From the Depths of Hell 5.8 5b 16 VI- HVS 4c  CO : Grand Junction area : McInnis Canyons
According to some people's taste, this might not be a classic. The route is essentially all wide, but it's on mostly good rock, unique setting, and just fun, easy climbing.The climb starts in a hallway between the tower and the buttress at a fist crack.P1: Climb up the perfect fist crack. The wall behind you helps make this easy and secure. Once you climb out of the hallway, climb up the obvious OW for about 30' and set an anchor using big cams (old #4.5 and #5 Camalots work well)...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
