Description

If you enjoy hard bouldery sport routes, this place is for you. Easy access, decent concentration and a significant lack of pump make this a bouldering/sport climbers dream. All though the routes lack any sort of typical sport endurance, the grades are not "easy" and require a significant source of power.

The Beach is a nice Fall/Winter/Spring area. During the summer months the river is generally too high to get across. Most of the cliff receives sun until mid-morning then shade the rest of the day.

Getting There

The Beach is located in the West End of the Narrows, Poudre Canyon, Co. Park at the same pull-out as for Snake Eyes wall and walk upstream until the crag comes into view. Cross the river right in front of the crag.

Recently draws were taken off several routes at The Beach. The culprit(s) only took the draws that were on the first or second bolts of routes (aka they did not climb the routes). We are hoping that this is a case of ignorance instead of intent, but it is hard to believe that the culprit(s) did not know that he/she was stealing draws.

If you took the draws, please drop them off at Miramont or Ascent Studios and say these draws are for the Northern Colorado Climbers Coalition, and we can return them to their owners. Nov 20, 2017
