Description

The Alpine Lite Cliffs are a northwest-facing group of buttresses and spires that sit just above the Chicago Lakes. Though part of the Mt. Evans massif, the cliffs are technically just below and between the summits of Mt. Warren and Rogers Peak. The formations are somewhat similar in size and nature to Lumpy Ridge but at a higher and cooler elevation and with a shadier aspect. As the name alludes, the routes provide a great alpine setting without much in the way of approach time or commitment, even by Mt. Evans standards. Several mixed routes exist here, including Concrete Shoes Won't Help Ya In Da River, Road Less Warren, and The Road. On our visit on July 1st 2012, we saw no evidence of any rock routes that had been established in the area. More information may ....

Getting There

Approach by driving to Summit Lake then hiking down to Upper Chicago Lake. From the shore of Upper Chicago Lake, head due east traversing the slope and eventually exposed but easy slabs. From the top of the climbs, simply traverse west back to Summit Lake.
