Prepare yourself for 2,000 foot tall, narrow canyon walls dropping almost vertically to the Gunnison River.
The Black Canyon is known for crumbling rock, dizzying heights, and a lack of places to place protective equipment. Rock climbing is a challenge limited to highly experienced, expert climbers only.

Poison ivy is abundant at the bottom of Black Canyon. It can grow over 5 feet tall along the Gunnison River.
