This is a town of ~2500 which sits approximately 12 miles east of Grand Junction (on the western slope) along the I-70 corridor. This area may be best known for its excellent climate and soil for growing Colorado grapes for the Colorado wineries. Winters here are mild; however, summers can be enervating.
Most folks will drive here via I-70. The town can be accessed via Exit 42 (or 44). Mt Garfield (~5500') is located WNW of Palisade, just north of the interstate. G.70 road which accesses the Mt. Garfield trailhead can be accessed via exit 42 and going south and then west.
The closest hospital, St. Mary's, is in Grand Junction if the tower should crumble prematurely.
So, is there any decent climbing higher up on Mt. Garfield?
