Description 

Mary's Lake is a small lake in the Estes Valley, nestled between Ram's Horn Mountain and Prospect Mountain. Although it's right off the road, this area is inconspicuous due to its unremarkable appearance.

This area is frequented by guides and is home to a handful of easy top ropes. Its proximity to town, easy approach, and straightforward top rope anchor access make this a decent after-work crag and a good place for families with little ones.

That said, the climbs here are OK at best and aren't worth driving far for...especially considering the quality climbing mere minutes away.

Please be mindful/respectful of the homeowners to the east of each of the cliffs.

Getting There 

From Estes Park, take Mary's Lake Road until you reach a big turnout on the east side of the lake. Park here. The bulk of the climbing is directly across the road.

Roof Route 5.10- 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  CO : Estes Park Valley : ... : East Block
This technical face is thought-provoking and fairly sustained. A couple of thin moves off the ground lead to a small "roof". Surmount the roof (the crux), and enjoy easier, technical climbing to the top of the crag....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
