Black Canyon Climbs

climbing COLORADO SINCE 2010


The Black Canyon of The Gunnison National Park, also known as The Black, is one of the most awe-inspiring places to climb in the country, with steep canyon walls that stretch as far as the eye can see. This canyon will fulfill your needs of adventure while also delivering on high quality climbing on big walls!

Routes in the canyon can range from a 6-8 hour day, which is a Level 1 climb, or an 8-14 hour day, which would be a Level 2 climb. You start the day by hiking in from the rim of the canyon and then climbing up and out of the canyon, making it a unique experience for Colorado climbers.

These are some of our suggested, classic routes, along with a link to their descriptions on Mountain Project. There are many more classics in the canyon that we can guide you on as well that are not on the list. Depending on the time of year, we can suggest routes that are in the sun or shade. A great time of year to climb here is in the fall, when the temps are a little cooler and you climb in pleasant temperatures while in the shade.
