Family-style climbing at its finest! Roll on up to the City of Ouray's Rotary Park in your Chrysler woodie station wagon, flower-covered '67 VW Bus, or gas-guzzling-GMC-Yukon-with-a-soccer-mom-sticker-on-the-back SUV, and have a groovy time with all the kinfolk. Safe, easily accessed one-pitch climbs will have even Granny sending hard! Far enough off the road so the family dog won't get run over in traffic, but steps away from the public facilities should just such a need arise. So convenient that Uncle Fred can help belay from the backseat of the family car as he nurses his methadone hangover. Don't forget the picnic basket for those after-climbing BBQs (Even Little Johnny loves a Johnsonville Brat.)
- Thanks to the City Parks Maintenance Crew for the groovy landscaping
From the heart of Ouray, go north on US Hwy 550 toward Ridgway 1 mile. Look for the hockey rink on the right and turn into Rotary Park. Park by the public restrooms. Stroll 30 feet to the obvious cliff. Approach time: 10-12 seconds. Look for a handful of slabby short, moderate, well-protected sport/mixed lead climbs. Steep harder routes have been developed to the right around the corner. They stay dry-ish in a light rain. Good lap workouts for the power hour after work.
