Description

Roberts Ridge is a bouldering area only 15-20 minutes away from the Cadet Area. The problems are usually short 1, 2, or 3 move wonders with typically sharp crimps, slopers, and easy topouts. The rock is typical Pike’s Peak granite.

The area hosts 50+ problems from V0 to V9 and several unclimbed projects in the V7-V12 range. Watch out for lichen and choss as the Ridge was only fully developed in 2013; however, there is still potential for new development on unclimbed boulders.

Although evidence has been found of visits from at least as far back as 1997, the ridge was first [re]discovered by Jason Copeland in the Spring of 2013 and was quickly developed by members of the USAFA Climbing Team. The first ascents are noted by each problem.

The information was compiled by Austin Cooner and Jason Copeland.
