Unaweep Wall

Aug. 24th 2011

Rob Pizem, a member of SCARPA’s rock climbing team, has plans to free climb Unaweep Wall in Colorado this coming weekend.

In Rob’s words:
“Unaweep Wall lies on the west end of Unaweep Canyon just outside Grand Junction, Colorado. It is a granite and metamorphic gneiss, an overlooked and underused rock climbing mecca. Most of the noteworthy and established climbing is at the east end of the canyon on smaller features from sandstone boulders to 600 ft granite walls. Traditional routes are the main attraction, but more and more mixed and sport routes are being established by myself, Jesse Zacher and a few others.
