Description

The Swimming Hole is an area along the Colorado River to climb sport climbs and swim in the sun.

Getting There

Near Loma, Colorado, park at the Rustlers Loop Trail. Hike along Rustlers until you are overlooking the river at the top of the cliff. Walk along the drainage until you can see anchors to rap on to get to the bottom.

I went to climb these the other day, they are FUN but dirty.

They are dirty (as new routes are) and a suggestion for those visiting - wear your helmet as the climbs clean up. Watch out when pulling ropes (as they may dislodge loose rocks). Careful when lowering (as you may dislodge a loose rock). Bring a brush as some holds may be dirty.

As for the swimming, you will need to fix rope to a low bolt on any of the routes and lower it into the river and after jumping in, swim to the line and pull up and out of the river via the rope.

It is wise to preplace knots in the rope to grab onto as it may be tougher to climb out of the river than you think.

Looks like there are a few more possibilities for lines in the future.

The hike in takes about 15 minutes from the parking lot on Rustlers.
