Be ready for untapped granite bouldering on the northern lakeshore. A lot of sharp, crimpy rock but there are a few other holds if you look around long enough. Bring the tape, this place will eat the skin right off your fingers though. Certainly some classic sends waiting to happen. There may also be some trad, R/X type climbs on the northeast end of the lake.

Getting There 

Drive west out of C-Springs on Highway 24 to Lake George. Go South on Park County 90 and follow the pavement as it turns into Park County 92. Once you enter the state park its 5 bucks per car per day unless you have a state parks pass. So far I've seen a lot of great rock along the North shore area and Cyote Ridge. Either park in the parking lot by the playground or in the Cyote Ridge parking lot depending on where you want to explore.

This is a newer line on the boulder that is on the west face. Sit start low on a single good handhold, then move up to the well- chalked sloper. Move left hand to a good pinch and stretch to an unobvious crimp about halfway up then top out. Kurt and I cleaned come serious choss off this problem....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

FYI, Bill Schmausser and others from Colorado Springs have over the last several years been putting up routes on the crag above the reservoir.

I've toproped a few lines on boulders/rocks where the start would be in the water--kinda fun.

I did a lot of bouldering at the reservoir rocks back in the 1970s and early 1980s. Lots of great problems around the campground. Also along the northwest shore of the lake are some good problems. Steve Cheyney also did some bouldering explorations around here during that time period. Just another great Colorado bouldering site...
