About Lemon Reservoir:

Beautiful canyon with a river in it. AKA Florida River. Rock is mildly coarse granite and some flexi flake action so keep the landings clear and cowards like me may want a helmet! Also, quite a few top anchors are 1/4 inch chain directly attached to bolts. Bring biners made from small diameter bar stock to clip these things.
Nearest town or city: Durango
Directions: 1 min walk from upper FS campground w/30 ft downclimb on knotted rope (West Cliff). 1/4 mile walk in from parking spot (East Cliff). Other options exist depending on river level.
Latitude, Longitude:
Access Issues: None at this time. Questionable bolting ethics. Check them out.
Camping: Free
When to Climb:
Quantity of Climbs: Week
