The climbing at Poudre Falls consists of mostly bolted sport routes with a few mixed lines and boulder problems as well. It is a well-balanced area with grades from 5.8 to 5.14. This is a perfect Summer / Fall crag if you're looking for something new in the Northern Colorado area.

Yes, the Alpha Omega hanger is fixed and Loctite.
Haven't heard of any other issues, but we fix things up pretty quick.
