Hiked to the bottom camped around for a few days. Great views and spectacular rock. Not many people around was pretty great as well.

I live only 10 miles away, and love Black Canyon - it is great for cross country skiing in the winter, a great road biking up to South Rim (and the road to the river has the steepest grade in Colorado), good hiking, I don't fish - but Gunnison is full of large trouts, and of course rock climbing - scary huge walls, so I am doing only the easier ones (am an old lady after all).

I've been to both rims but this time I hiked down to the river via the Gunnison Route on May 9, 2012. I would like to hike other inner canyon routes later.

No other canyon in North America combines the narrow opening, sheer walls, and startling depths offered by the Black Canyon of the Gunnison.

Escape Artist. An amazing 8 pitched 10a. Back for more. There is nothing like climbing in the black. It's my type of climbing.

Drove around the South Rim and hiked to a bunch of the overviews of the canyon. Only had a few hours here, since we had to head back east.

Begin to hike late morning with my family. Hiked the Gunnison Route from the Visitor Center on the South Rim. Did not run into anyone on the trail. Steep cool wall very quickly heated up on the afternoon. Bring lots of water!

oxalisOuch.
Scrambled/slid down the trail from the visitors' center to the canyon floor and stayed the night. The trail is steep and comprised of loose rock and dust (in the summer). Legs were screaming a couple of days later, but it was worth it for the wild scenery at the canyon floor. Didn't see anyone else until nearly returned to visitors' center.

What an awesome place! Mostly a class 3 scramble. They aren't kidding about the poison ivy! We managed to get through unscathed, but took a lot of time just avoiding plants. Witnessed a climbing accident on the nearby wall, some protection popped out with a lot of rock and barely missed the rope team. Notified the rangers on the way out. Hope they all got out ok.
