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.

Move up left and then back right to the 1st bolt (hidden from ground). There are tricky moves between the 2nd and 3rd bolt. The crux is in the middle of the climb (5th bolt?) at a vertical section with rounded holds. Don't use the loose block sitting up and left. The huge horn at 8th bolt is awesome! Cruise easily to chains after pulling past it.If anyone has more details of this climb (name, 1st ascent party and date, difficulty, etc), I will update this route....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
