Description

The fascinating Unaweep Canyon cuts through the Colorado Plateau and is home to quality climbing along sandstone and granite rock.

The canyon is unique in that two creeks flow out of opposing ends of the canyon, East Creek and West Creek.

The word Unaweep originates from the native Ute language meaning two mouths. It is actually the only canyon in the world where water flows in opposite directions.

This spectacular backdrop provides excellent crack climbing, trad climbing and multi-pitch climbing opportunities.

The routes here reach heights of 500 feet and will certainly get the adrenaline pumping as you get to grips with the rock.

Close to the city of Grand Junction, sandwiched between the mountainous Continental Divide and the Green River, Unaweep Canyon is ideal to practice and perfect your skills with anchors and leads.

One of my favourite spots for multi-pitch climbing is Sweet Sunday Serenade, offering 3 pitches of amazing ascent on granite rock.

It runs all the way to Sunday Wall, which is one of the most prominent and popular walls in the entire canyon, and is widely accessible to most climbers.

Rock Guide

I have climbed extensively throughout North America since 1997 and have been involved in instructing and guiding climbers since 1999. With notable ascents of famed rock climbs like El Cap and over 250 first ascents in Colorado and Utah, I have made climbing a big part of my life and I'm always eager to share that love with others.

I have been a member of the American Mountain Guides Association since 2003. I am a Certified Rock Guide and Single Pitch Instructor Assistant Provider in addition to successfully completing the Alpine Guide and Ice Instructor Courses.

I guide rock, alpine and ice routes throughout Colorado, Utah and the western United States. Some of my favorite places to guide are the high alpine peaks of the Aspen area, the desert rock climbing areas of Moab and Grand Junction as well as ice climbing in western Colorado.

I am active with the American Safe Climbing Association and have rebolted hundreds of bolts and helped maintain dozens of routes in Colorado and Utah.

During the school year I teach rock and ice climbing, canyoneering and climbing self rescue courses for Colorado Mountain College. I also teach wilderness medicine for Desert Mountain Medicine throughout the year.

Awesome! Mike was fabulous and would recommend him to anyone interested in doing the same. I would say that the process to get a reservation felt like it took a while - would've been nice if there was a FAQs to describe what to expect during the day of the trip. Also, a number to contact for more information rather than just chat would be great. Overall, loved it and would do it again.
