There are some good buildering options around Northwest Denver including: Regis University, old town Arvada, and surrounding areas. So far, we only have Regis University going up on the books, but that will soon expand into surrounding areas. If you climb on campus, just don't be super obvious and obnoxious, and no one should bother you.

Getting There 

This area is just off the I-70 going north on Federal Ave. It has the potential to stretch over into Arvada and Westminster. There is a parking issue at Regis University where they make you pay, but you can park next to Regis Liquors for free and make the short 2 minute approach on campus.

Color Chimney V1 5  Colorado : Northwest Denver Buildering : Regis Campus
This is a fun chimney, kinda small and thin on one side but doable.A fun variation to this route is starting on the door with your hand on the inside of the crack, and you go up to the ledge and into the chimney from there to make it a little harder....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
