Could use some help in finding a climbing area off I-70 between say georgetown and glenwood springs, on national forest land that requires a 2-3 mile hike in, bolted preferably with climbs in the 5.6 to 5.10 range. I've done a lot of research on mtn project but everything seems to be right next to a road, and colorado climbing guide discusses major areas predominantly, im looking for something off the beaten path. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks! Charles V.

Kind of a weird request.

It's a little bit past Glenwood but have you considered Pup Tent/Main Elk?

Pup Tent is a good place for beginners. There's a bunch of climbs in the 5.7 - 5.9 range. That said, chances are there will be other people there, with other dogs, both climbing and hiking. Letting dogs run around completely unhindered is probably not a good idea. Alvaro Arnal

alright appreciate it, and agree about the dogs, thats why im looking for some place away from the crowds.. the search continues, main elk looks great, some closures apparently for raptor nesting, but i will keep hunting, thank you. Charles V.

Lumpy literally only has a handful of bolted routes and most of them are here mountainproject.com/v/the-book.... ChefMattThaner
