Just bought a condo in Avon and lookin' for beta on moderate climbs in area. Sport/Trad/Whatever. Any advice appreciated. T. Maino

Head over to Wolcott, but don't climb on the crag under the house! Go to the boulders and walk across to the tracks. Walk maybe a quarter mile (west) or something and you find a path to sunny sport/trad. The left most wall has a great crack, The Guru Crack. I guess there's even a guidebook now, Check Bag n' Pack. The Puoux (sp?) wall in Glenwood is a pretty close and has a quick approach to sport climbs both moderate and very difficult. It's all here on MP. T.Dailey

Lime Park is great but it might need some more time to melt out, maybe not. Anyone tried for it yet? T.Dailey

Function over fashion.  My newest pair of climbing...
There's some descent sport climbing in Gilman Canyon. I really like the rock here:

There is a paper back book available for Wolcott at the Bag and Pack in Avon or Vail for 21 bucks. Lime Park is great but there is too much snow on the road still. Gilman, Homestake, and the Kluttergarden are all good to go. If you need any help finding anything send me a message. Roberto Morales
