Description Suggest change

The Gregory Canyon Amphitheatre is a classic climbing area. Thousands of climbers have had their first ascents on the gentle rocks that rest here. On sunny weekends, the inside of the amphitheatre is usually beseiged by climbing programs and beginners. The exterior of the amphitheatre has a number of attractive routes of varying difficulty.

Getting There Suggest change

Park either at Chautauqua parking (on the south side of Baseline at about 9th street), or at the Gregory Canyon parking lot. NOTE: If your car tags aren't from Boulder County, definitely pay the fee ($3/d or $25/y) if you park at the latter. From Chautauqua, walk the Baseline trail until you join up with the Amphitheater trail. About 300 yards up, (to access the the N face of First Pinnacle or the E face of the East Bench) take the climbing Amphitheater Express trail, which loops around the north side of the Amphitheater. The regular route (Amphitheater Trail) continues up, and 150 yards later the Amphitheater (T-Zero, W face of E Bench, S face of First Pinnacle, E & S & W face of Second Pinnacle, E face of West Bench) appears on your right side.
