Colorado – Boulder, Colorado Springs Areas

Boulder, Colorado Springs and other central Colorado areas

There’s so much climbing to be done in the central Colorado area that I can’t begin to go into details. Remember that the older climbing areas, like Boulder Canyon, have old-time stiffer grades. When the kids were little, we spent a day climbing in Boulder Canyon with them. The approach, a steep trail, was no problem for them, and we top roped with a bunch of old friends from our college days. I went back to Colorado in 2007 without the kids, having a great time climbing in the Colorado Springs area (Garden of the Gods, Elevenmile Canyon) and the Boulder area (Flatirons and Boulder Canyon). I returned again with the kids in 2010 for a quick trip on our way from Wyoming to Denver, with a little climbing in Boulder Canyon.
