Description 

These are the cliffs on the Northwest side of the reservoir, directly east of the dam. They are a popular cliff jumping spot in the summer, so come prepared. Although not a climbing destination, the thrill of deep water soloing is hard to beat.

Getting There 

From Denver, take I-70 west to CO 9 north. Pull off when you see "Green Mountain Reservoir", and drive all the way around the reservoir until you drive over the dam. The cliffs are directly next to the dam, you literally cannot miss them.

Reverse Cliff Jump 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b Colorado : Green Mountain Reservoir
This is the terribly chossy climb up the face of the larger cliff-jumping spot. Downclimb the southeast gully, and traverse over the water. From here, the water is deep enough if you fall, unless you cheese-grate the whole way down. The reservoir is super deep really close to the rocks, so this is a perfect deep water-solo route!...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
