Looking for suggestions for sport routes/areas to check out near Denver in late May, early June. Grades 5.7-5.11ish. There is SO much climbing I don't know where to start. We'll be climbing maybe 4 days total.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions you have!

Clear Creek has a great variety at that grade, and the time of year would be fine. Shelf is a couple hours away and is amazing at the moderates. Eric Carlos

If you want close (30 min from Denver to crag) go to clear creek. Boulder canyon has plenty of sport nearby too. You'll find stuff of all quality levels. I like both but not world class. However, most of the time you'll be right off a busy road. A day trip to something more scenic would be Staunton state park or golden gate state park. A. Bandos

tan corridor in staunton has some amazing 10's and 11's. Absolutely worth it... worth noting it needs to be warm and no recent rain to climb there comfortably. Could be hit or miss in late may. hmm... Todd Ra
