Hello Mountain Project!

I am a Salt Lake climber who will be visiting Estes Valley this July. I have been pretty stoked on the offwidths here in Utah, and would like to experience some of the wide that Colorado has to offer. I already plan on hitting some of the Lumpy Ridge classics (Kor's Flake, Crack of Fear, Etc.). However, I am also stoked on offwidth bouldering. I have seen some videos on youtube of OW bouldering in Estes, but beta on the location of these problems has been somewhat elusive. Does anyone know where I might glean some information about these routes?

Additionally, any roped/bouldering offwidth route suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I know the area around the Lumpy parking lot has some short-ish offwidths that could be bouldered. If nothing else you could just go for a walk and see what you find.

There are a few other routes I know of. Wolf's Tooth and Tiger's Tooth on Twin Owls. I'm sure there are more.

Be careful, if you're coming in July Twin Owls probably won't be open due to raptor nesting (which has COF, Wolf's Tooth, Tiger's Tooth). They usually open the closed crags Aug. 1st. Look at the RMNP website to see which crags are closed at Lumpy.

As far as bouldering, sorry, no clue.

Edit: Stop in Vedauwoo for your offwidth madness.

You really should just go to vedauwoo.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
