42Em761- Fremont cliff granaries

Tree-Ring Samples RD 173-176, 283-286

Three large Fremont masonry and adobe granaries located in cliffs above a natural sandstone chimney in the wall of the narrows of Range Creek Canyon. Access is by climbing up the chimney and shuttling packs with ropes, then climbing a cliff and talus above the chimney and rappelling into the large, double-chamber granary. There are associated maize, a lithic tool, parched wildrye and Indian rice-grass seeds.
