Fun Climbs Colorado: Best Family Climbing Vacations is the first vacation travel guide written specifically for climbers. It is a comprehensive guide to climbing vacations for traveling climbers and their families.
It describes camping, other lodging, restaurants, rest day activities including horseback riding, white water rafting, mountain biking, nearby hikes, fishing, mini golf, and other activities. The 10 climbing areas have routes that are suitable for beginners, provide easy access for older climbers, a safe base area for kids, good quality rock, and an easy descent.
Sibylle Hechtel and Beverly Johnson did the first all-female ascent of Yosemite’s El Capitan. She wrote the iconic story “Walls Without Balls”, which has been reprinted in Steve Roper’s Ordeal by Piton and the controversy about its title was featured in the movie Vertical Frontier.
Join Sibylle Hechtel for a presentation about climbing in Colorado, plus City of Rocks, Tuolumne Meadows, and Squamish Chief.
Copies of Fun Climbs Colorado will be available for sale and Sibylle will be on hand to sign copies upon request.
