About Loiterland:

Some decent climbing minutes from town. Because of the formation of the rock on nearly every climb you find a overhang or a ledge at the half way point. Not too much traffic which is nice but some of the climbs are dirty and covered with moss-like stuff. Also be careful, abundance of private property around, remeber "respect."
Nearest town or city: Durango
Directions: Directions from the book: From Main Avenue turn West on 32nd Street then right on West 4th Ave for one block to the Animas Mountain Trailhead. Follow the powerline trail west then north for another 20 minutes, staying right. The trail leads to a gigantic cube with a huge overhanging west wall. The climbing area is right behind it.
