  • Description 

    Rincon is a small but amazing crag with probably the highest density of quality routes in all of Eldorado Canyon State Park. Classic and awesome traditional climbs abound here and should not be missed. While nearly all the climbs here are in the moderate range, certainly the 5.10s-5.11s are better represented. There is little for the low or high end climber here, but there is much to feed the soul of a large percentage of climbers. The views are soothing and extend to the continental divide. It's worth the walk.

    Although there are a few bolted lines, you will likely need your rack and protection skills to succeed here.

    Often on a nice weekend, for good reason, this wall along with the West Ridge can be very popular with climbers. Its southern exposure makes it particularly pleasant during cooler months although early days in summer months can be delightful as well.

    There are so many fine routes here! Some of the best include: Over and Out, 5.8; Emerald City, 5.9; Over the Hill, 5.10b; Aerial Book, 5.11a; Aerospace, 5.11b s; Climb of the Century, 5.11c s; Wendego, 5.12a/b s; 5.12c; & Evictor, 5.12c/d s.

    Descents include some rappels or downclimbing gullies both L or R of the crag.

    Note, if anyone has particularly good base digital photos for rendering a topo for this page, please let me know.

    Judging by the amount of chalk on the holds, this must be a popular route. The line is stellar. One of the best pitches of the grade, but probably not led as often as one might think...Modern gear has made an amazing impact! Before micro cams this was a super serious lead. Now its still a bit heads up, but the competent climber with Aliens or TCU's should be OK.The start of the route is a play on angular irregularities. Two ways to start: Power straight up the pillar (reachy), or stem the l...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
