East Portal, Black Canyon of Gunnison

 East Portal, Black Canyon of Gunnison   

Big enough to be overwhelming, still intimate enough to feel the pulse of time, Black Canyon of the Gunnison exposes you to some of the steepest cliffs, oldest rock, and craggiest spires in North America. With two million years to work, the Gunnison River, along with the forces of weathering, has sculpted this vertical wilderness of rock, water, and sky. Virtually unknown even to Colorado riders, but available to you on BigRingVR ! Use those 2k of flat warm-up wisely, because next 5k@12% avg are going to hurt really bad.
