Looking for classic trad lines in Eldorado Canyon SP, multi-pitch alpine routes in "The Park" or maybe you want to get scared in the Black Canyon? Or perhaps you want to climb some ice or work on some mixed, nasty stuff? Hopefully you'll find it here on the most comprehensive climbing database in Colorado.
Areas are grouped, in general, geographically to their nearest major town to help you locate climbing areas and plan your trips. Local info, such as, where to stay, good places to eat, brew pubs etc. have been added as well to make your stay more enjoyable. If you can't find the information you need, then go to the forums and ask a question.
Either search for routes by area and then crag via the menu to the left of this page, or use the search tool to locate routes by different criteria, such as grade and location. With approximately 5700 routes (and growing), hopefully you can find something to your liking.
If you are looking for specific types of climbing, like sport, trad, ice, etc., you can lock on to those routes quickly by using the show routes drop down box. It's located just above the select area menu on the left side of the page. For example, if you select ice, you'll see all the ice climbing locations in Colorado. The number of routes is listed in bright red!
Or, if you only want the ice/mixed climbs, you can connect to the temporary collection of ice/mixed routes. Please give us feedback.
A new area we're trying out is a section on ?Indoor Walls? in the state. There are some deals, some interesting features, and info for these walls for when you you're pulling on plastic.
Here is a quick link for the latest ice conditions;mode=&daysold=90&locationId=105708956&filter=COND that have been reported. Going somewhere new this weekend and not sure about whether the ice is in or not, then post a question in the ice conditions forum.
This is a quick link to seasonal closures in Colorado.
