Deer Creek Canyon Cave Rock Climbing
Cool, shady, very nice in the middle of summer when the creek is running. Climb for a bit, then cool off in the creek. Not crowded, most drive by without seeing it. Don't bother if it rained today or yesterday, because of the location it takes about a day to dry off after a good rain.
This is west of Littleton, about 5 miles into the foothills. Head up Deer Creek Canyon road (CO Rd 124) from C-470 and Kipling. After you pass South Valley Rd, it's about 2.5 miles up the hill on the left (south) side of the road. There's a small dirt pullout, you can fit 4 or 5 cars, and a little Jefferson County open space/no dumping sign. It's just at the tail end of perhaps the only straight stretch on this road.

Once you're on the far right side of the boulder, pull up and dart your left hand out for the final crux move. An easy V1 traverse to the left taking you over top the cave will get you down on the far left side of the cave....[more] Browse More Classics in Colorado
