Description

Since there isn't any for Kansas I figure I would build something for the state.

I know there isn't much in the Kansas climbing wise, but what there is we need to help pass knowledge so climbers in KS don't feel completely hopeless. It's all about progression!


I've been putting up locations now you only need to get out there and build up the routes!

Just moved to Junction City and I am looking for some climbing partners in Kansas!! Nov 1, 2016
Monument Rocks and Castle Rock are kind of a soft chalky formation that aren't well suited to climb because of their makeup. You could get a little climbing at either place but be prepared for holds to break. I have been to both and they are impressive for Kansas. If you are ok with doing some scrambling I would suggest going closer to Castle Rock. It has a mini badlands next to it that is fun to explore. Also, be aware that the property recently changed ownership. I am not sure what his/her rules are about visitors now.

Discover Rock City, a National Natural Landmark just 20 minutes north of I-70 on U.S 81 Hwy north of Salina, KS. A great stop for climbers and kids of all ages, Rock City has been a favorite picnic stop for geology buffs and vacationers for over 100 years. There's dozens of rocks worthy of climbing, dozens more to marvel at. These concretions were formed millions of years ago and are preserved by the non-profit Rock City, Inc volunteers for your enjoyment. Nature trail, picnic shelter, primitive restrooms and gift shop on the premises. Cheap camping with electricity and water in Markley Grove Park, the riverside city park in Minneapolis just 3 miles north of Rock City.

Fortunately or unfortunately that I will have to make a trip from Denver to Kansas City. I am not expecting any climbing, great if there is, but I would be interested in finding out if there is anything to do or see along the way. Also where can I camp over night for cheap or free? If anyone has any suggestions, that would be much appreciated. Mar 25, 2013
