Grizzlies West features steep cliffs and difficult mountain passes. The area is bordered by Big Valley further to the west and the neighbor Grizzlies East to the east. The southern border is defined by Dakota River passing through the region. Inaccessible mountain ranges border the rest of the north.
The area is largely covered by snow to the north and abundant woodland near the riverside. As such, the area is severely isolated and dangerous evident to the lack of settlements and towns in the area. The region consists of mountain ridges, snow-capped valleys, and treacherous cliffs. Its climate is rather cold so it is advisable to wear ideal clothing when entering the region. Only a few wildlife inhabits the land, a number of it can survive the harsh temperatures and weather conditions.
Notable landmarks within the area are Mount Hagen, one of the highest accessible mountains and Lake Isabella. Aside from the lake, there are patches of frozen ponds and small lakes hidden within the region. An active creek is present despite the cold temperature far north; its main sources are the mountain glaciers of the Grizzlies.
