Description

Considered by some to be the best sport climbing in the whole country, Jack’s Canyon is characterized by steep, highly pocketed, sandstone/limestone cliffs that range from wildly overhanging to vertical. Almost 300 routes for a practically unlimited climbing fix. And it gets better—free, dispersed camping right on the rim of the canyon. This place is very lightly used, there’s a vault toilet, and the most amazing sunrises you’ve ever seen. Bring your climbing gear and lots food and water, and you’ll be good to go for days on end.

Noob or veteran - Jack's Delivers!!! Primitive sites with vault toilets. Drive on Highway 87 for roughly 30 miles to mile marker 314. About .3 miles past this pull off right at a gate. From the gate, continue straight on a well maintained dirt road til you hit the sites. Be prepared to make friends because you will no doubt find yourself among fellow climbers and beer-toting outdoorsians. There is no water in the area so bring your own.From the sites, it's a short hike down into the canyon and days of climbing adventure!! Watch the sun and plan your climbing spots to stay cool (or warm depending on season).
