X-Rock Climbing Area
Part of the Animas Mountain Trail System.
The sport of rock climbing has gained wide popularity in recent years. Durango has a number of popular local climbing areas that are close and accessible. By far the most popular area is X-Rock, which is named for the unique rock which has a large, natural “X” on the front face. The cliffs in this area provide many excellent novice and intermediate climbs.
The X-Rock Climbing Area is accessible via the Animas Mountain Trail System.
