Lyons is a small town of approximately 1500 people located North of Boulder but part of Boulder County. It lies at the downhill end of the canyon connecting with Estes Park.
From Boulder follow US 36 north for approximately 10 miles. Watch out for cyclists!
Lyons is oddly a culinary hotspot which draws gourmands from a far.
To be the heat after climbing on hot days, you can tube the St. Vrain after the spring runoff. Some put in above Lyons, on the south side (public land) of US 36. Some put in at the park northwest of the intersection of CO 7 and the St. Vrain. You can pullout at Bond Park.

Comanchee Warrior is to the left of War Path and follows the dihedral corner. The first pitch of War Path follows up a short roof and slab to a mid point anchor. The second follows the spectacular fin in the upper third of the wall. The first pitch was redpointed by Bernard [Gillett] at 5.12a at the end of...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
