I'm going to be in Denver 7/28 & 7/29 and would like to climb something in the 5.7 range. Plenty of lead belay experience (single and multi pitch) and I'm looking to follow something (single or multi pitch). I can bring a rope/rack if need be. I'll be flying in so I'd prefer to nail down logistics as soon as possible so I can determine if I need to bring any gear. Planning to camp in the Estes Park area but can shimmy down to Boulder if that's where you'll be (also open to camping suggestions outside of the RMNP campgrounds).

PM or text (six zero three, three zero five, five four one seven)

So I commute to estes almost every weekend, from colorado springs, after work on friday, but to boulder in RMNP. Camping is horendous in the summer. Everywhere in estes proper is sold out except for the Elk Lodge Campgroung, at $50 a night. On route 7 south of estes, You may get lucky at Meeker, or the forest land (which is free but often taken).

Also a lot of the sport is super hard, and the trad on lumpy ridge is closed during nesting season.there are intermitten moderate routes but its not the best cragging destination for easier climbs.

Anyway PM me is you want to boulder, and maybe we could hit up some sport. Best of luck.

Not exactly. Plenty of Lumpy is open to climbing, just seasonal closures at a few of the crags there. See nps.gov/romo/planyourvisit/are....

Interesting. Yea I guess that statement was from word of mouth. I heard from a longmont local that the nesting has been different this year and more crahs were closed. I have zero evidence to back that up. Def check in on that. Dan Cooksey

The nesting closures last until August 1. Sometimes they are lifted sooner if the chicks fledge and the nests are abandoned. The RMNP web page listed above is kept up to date with this information. Kevin Zagorda
