The Wet Mountains are a hidden gem of Southern Colorado climbing, boasting steep sport granite and multi-pitch trad climbing. During the winter months ice climbing is also possible.
The Wet Mountains lie south of Canon City and close to Florence. Please refer to the area descriptions on how to locate each climbing area as they are dispersed.
Information about the Wet Mountains is currently on the light side, so if you are venturing down there, a handy resource would be the area's guidebook, The Ripper, available from SharpEnd Books and climbing shops.
