Middle Fork of St. Vrain Canyon Rock Climbing
Nice stem action on this route.
This is a section on the rock of along the Middle Fork of the St. Vrain River. It is ~8000' in altitude. The rock is granitic. This generally receives little climber attention. The Middle fork is typically fairly easy to cross via wading; however, a heavy spring runoff may make it more challenging and require extra shenanigans like balancing over a log.
