Rock Climbing Shelf Road



by Mark Van Horn, Falcon Press, 1999. Out of print though usually available used from online retailers.
PURCHASE THIS ITEM

Newly updated guide to a premier Colorado limestone sport crag outside of Canon City. Includes areas recently acquired by the Access Fund. Knapp's guide does include additional areas that Van Horn doesn't, but those areas are currently private property and have access issues. Van Horn's is a good guidebook, considering the thorough topos, pictures, history, directions and .... route descriptions? Well Van Horn is far from verbose with his route descriptions. Get used to the following words: devious, technical, continuous, strenuous, thin, sharp, and sequential. Mathematically Van Horn has found the orthoganol set of route desciption words, the smallest possible set of words to adequately describe the routes. And darn tootin, it works, leaving just enough to the imagination. If you're considering getting a guide to Shelf, then this is a good one.

Includes The Gallery, Sand Gulch, Dead Colt, The Dark Side, The Bank, The Vault, Cactus Cliff, Spiney Ridge, & The Gym.
