I am looking for some suggestions on Quick and Easy approaches in the Colorado Front Range area for this week while the weather is nice.

Sport and/or Trad up to .11+

The quicker and easier the approach the better.

Thanks.

The sport wall is really quick. Low in the canyon, approach takes about 5 min. with only a short uphill part. Gets good winter sun too. SteveZ

There are only a few places with easier approach than Mary's Bust:

It is all well bolted sport. Single pitch as well as a great 6 pitch route (5.9 - 5.11a).

Head up (or down) Big Thompson Canyon.
Park at mile marker 73.
The trail head is about 150 yards west of mile marker 73, and it is marked with cairn.
Walk up the hill... it's a rather steep trail, but only takes 5 minutes.
