Climbing on the Navajo Nation is ILLEGAL. MORE INFO >>>


The Navajo Nation covers a large area within the four corners region of Utah, Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico. The majority of this land lies within Arizona and New Mexico. This section covers only the portion of the reservation that exists in New Mexico, one can see the Arizona Navajolands as well.

Presently, climbing is banned in the Navajo Nation. This information is included only for historical purposes. Please see this informative article, written by Cameron M. Burns (aka Camster (Rhymes with Hamster)) for more information.

Getting There 

The Navajo reservation covers a huge corner of the map in the northwest portion of the state. Most of the area can be accessed by heading north from Gallup, NM or south from Shiprock, NM on the late US Highway 666 (now US-491).
