Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionThis is likely the best of the climbing at Golden Gate State Park. There are at least 3 crags here. All are visible from the Panorama Point. These crags are up to 450 feet in height. The rock is decent to excellent granite, generally less than vertical, filled with many cracks. Access is via faint trails or bushwhacking from Panorama Point with hikes to 1+ hours. These are generally west-facing, so you can generally watch the weather come in. The views are pleasant.
This is a sub-alpine climbing area at an elevation of ~10,000'.
For now, the crowds are not here.
State Park; Fee Required. Details
Golden Gate Canyon is a State Park and a $6 (2010) fee is required for entrance. Self serve kiosks exist throughout the park. Annual passes can be purchased for $60.
Getting ThereFrom Golden, head N on CO Hwy 93, head W up Golden Gate Canyon Rd to the park, turn R up the road past Kriley Pond and switchback to a gravel road. Follow the signs to Panorama Point. Hike.
Per Lee Smith: instead of hiking directly from Panorama Point, head down the road (east) for about 1/10th of a mile until the crag is due north and then head into the woods. It is much faster than starting right at Panorama Point.
