Painted Wall

The Painted Wall is one of the most impressive features of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. It is the tallest cliff in Colorado, being 2250 feet tall from the river (which you can see in one of the pictures) to the top of the cliff.

The Grand Canyon is about 6000 feet from river to rim, by comparison, and is much wider of course. But this is tougher rock and this Canyon is considerably younger than the Grand Canyon.
