About Dry Creek:

Mix of sport, trad, and top rope options.
Nearest town or city: Montrose, CO
Directions: Head west on Main Street, which changes into Spring Creek Rd. But instead of turning onto 60.00 Rd, continue to 5875 Rd. From Rim Road continue west for 2.3 miles. There will be a dirt road branching off to the right=north. There are no signs pointing you this way. Rim Road is a nice dirt road, you do not need any special vehicle for that part, but after you turn onto "our dirt road = Dry Creek Highway" leading to the crags, the road becomes more bumpy. There are posts telling you to stay on the road, at some points the road is barely perceptible. It is 1.6 miles from the turn off from Rim Road to the top of the crags, and the last 0.25 miles are very bumpy. You need a 4WD high clearance vehicle for the past 1/4 mile.
