Clear Creek Canyon and North Table Mountain/Golden Cliffs are definitely the most popular climbing areas. North Table Mt, in particular, is popular as an after work venue with the Denver crew, with its fast and easy access and late afternoon sun.
In addition, there are other less-well-known crags in the general area like Lookout Mt Crag, South Table Mt., the currently closed Ralston Buttes, Golden Gate Canyon SP, among others.
Map of Golden
Coors Brewery does offer a tour with samples. If you are short for time, ask to do the "short tour."
There is a fun kayak park located on the W end of Golden for those choosing cross-training and/or thermal cooling.
Climbing Gear Resources
Neptune Mountaineering (Table Mesa Shopping Center). It is the oldest climbing shop in Boulder and has a great selection of gear and a knowledgeable staff. Thursday night slide shows are often with world-famous climbers. Check out their climbing museum: photos and climbing memorabilia from all over the world, including Edmund Hillary's boots, and a photo of Gaston Rebuffat running it out with just a hemp rope tied around his waist!
Rock and Resole was originally primarily a rock and ice boot resoler. As of 2017, they have become an "outfitter" carrying shoes, tools, aid gear, bouldering gear, cams, and ropes.
REI, a long time outdoor co-op, located in various locations including Denver, Boulder, and Westminster, carries rock, snow, and ice gear.
