Description

This is the second largest rock in the Photographer's Peak area. It has my favorite climbs of the area on it. Four Little Fishies is a great 5.9 face climb, and the 5.3 Conn Route is one of the best 3 pitch beginner's routes imaginable (gear).

Getting There

Drive to the Photographer's Peak parking area described under the area directions. Aquarium Rock is the second closest rock to the parking. Walk to the left around the base of Photographer's Peak. The next rock is Aquarium, and the first route that you encounter is Four Little Fishies (the bolted route that starts on top of the triangular-shaped detached boulder).

If anyone can put me in contact with Pete deLannoy I would appreciate it. Pete is an old friend from back in the Gunnison Days. I lost track of him years ago but the latest issue of Alpinist has a fabulous article by Pete and it got me thinking it would be fun to rope up again. Either e-mail me through this site or call 303-949-9275 Thanks sincerely Phil Broscovak. Boulder, Co. Feb 28, 2006
Super Fun for both neophyte and Veteran. The Vet will probably want to just two pitch it. Rap station is "new and improved". Incredible views of Sylvan Lake. MUST DO!!!! Jul 2, 2007

I just saw Pete mentioned in an article in Climbing and I'd like to find him again too. We were in grad school together at CU in the '80's. I can't seem to find him on the BHSU website. If anybody can forward my email to him I'd appreciate it. bigsky@commspeed.net

There is a route that starts between Aquarium and Photogs peak and ascends Aquarium called Squidward Ho that I wish someone would add. I climbed it Sep 11, 2018. It has a feature that resembles a Squids body. It joins the top of Four Little Fishies for the easy run out part. I found it superior to FLF in movement. Aug 16, 2018

Agree with Buck Rio -- did Squidward Ho Aug 29, 2018, then the top of Conn Route Sep 11, 2018
