Red Lyin' Slab Rock Climbing
|2016 Seasonal Raptor Closures - Eagle Rock remains closed MORE INFO >>>|
Just past the Red Lion Inn on the right side of the highway is a low angle slab with some blasted rock at its base. The rock quality is good, but generally low angle and unprotected. If you belay from the bottom realize you will be standing on the shoulder of the road. Toproping from above is the best option. For a number of reasons, I would suggest climbing elsewhere, but if you must, please be very careful not to kick any rocks into traffic!
2.8 miles up Boulder Canyon from where the highway crosses the creek on the right hand side. Park just past the slab.

Begin on the blasted rock at the base of the slab. Pop a small roof (5.8) and continue upward on easy terrain. A dike with large, quartz crystals provides the most obvious path. If you climb this, be extremely careful not to kick any rocks loose onto passing cars as this route is directly over the highway....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
