About East Animas:

East Animas is the site of some of the highest quality climbs in the Durango area. Like X-Rock it is very close to town which makes it popular with locals...the incredible crack and face climbing also might have something to do with the popularity. The real nice routes start at about 5.9 and go up from there. There are a few sport routes but most of the climbs require gear.

Directions: Starting at the North City Market-----Head east on 32nd street about 1 1/2 miles till the road T's at the stop sign. Turn left onto CR 250. Follow this road for about 1 mile.
