Description 

Coming soon...

[This side of the impressive Black Canyon of the Gunnison is known for its impressive, long routes with warmer temperatures. Despite the canyon's steepness and narrowness, these routes have a brighter ambience than some of the neighboring walls across the water. The one disadvantage to climbing on this side is that access is somewhat longer.

All routes here should be considered adventure climbing with challenging rock, rock quality, route finding, runouts, etc.. Assistance, in the event of the unexpected, is difficult to non-existent. Be prepared.

As with most climbing in the area, poison ivy and ticks are hazards during the non-climbing times of your visits here. Some folks have been even known to wear disposable Tivek suits to avoid these diminuitive demons.

This is a really good route that needs to get done more. The climbing is fun and will clean up nicely with more traffic.P1: Start in a short, left-facing corner that turns into a more straight-in crack. Climb this, then move right into another crack leading up to and through a roof with a nice hand crack. Continue up the hand crack to a nice ledge and belay (~130', 5.10).P2: Move up and right past a short, right-arching crack, then wander up and right on loose and junky rock to a small stance/le...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Yo Dude Levin,So what's the deal with no description of "Stoned Oven", "Air Voyage" and the "Nose". We Know you have sent everything in the Black. More info would be killer. P.S. Slayer Rules!

Yo Dudanonymous,Good point, although he HAS submitted a brilliant description for The Free Nose. Check it out; it nearly sounds possible (except for all those pesky 5.12 sections). Oooh.....The Black, how it beckons yet frightens me.Jason

Justin,

Considering what the black canyon did to your pooper last time, I would run the next time it pulls down your pants...
