After a few summits out in the Front Range, I am now a convert. The wonderful difference from our mountains further West, though, is tempered by the ever-increasing crowds from Denver and elsewhere...
Love the Front Range!!!
Hit quite a few mountains in this range. Finally got up to Estes area this year. Climbed north face on Longs Peak, and that is the favorite thus far. RMNP is very worthy of coming back to explore more another time..
Bagged a couple small peaks while spending a few days in Boulder. The range is awesome and is definitely calling me back. Longs is definitely on the list.
I've climbed Longs Peak and many peaks in the Boulder Group.
Lived in Manitou Springs and Colorado City for five years, thus I hiked a lot in the Pikes Peak area. Got into both hiking and climbing and rock hounding because of these rambles. A great place!
so many high-quality routes, it's mind-boggling! what's next?
Never get tired of all the options.
live right near the front range. Plenty of climbing and hiking to keep me busy a lifetime.
So glad this area is only minutes away for me! Can never get tired of hiking here.
Front Range is like convinient store, close and handy. So many peaks, regardless of height there is something for everybody.
Have climbed, hiked, bushwhacked (navigation), trail-ran pretty much all ranges and aspects of the Front Range. Quad-Pointing REALLY gets one out to discover the lesser known areas accessable only by hoofing straight up sides, up drainages, across private property using only map & compass.
Then there's the area's high peaks...
SO much diversity.
Took a motorcycle trip visiting 5 Colorado ranges and climbing 7 peaks. I'll be back for more some day.
Lived in Laramie, WY for two years and explored the Front Range many times
Climbed Biersdtadt, Longs Peak, Evans, Torreys and Greys Peaks, several times. Nice solo hikes/climbs while living in CO.
to spend some more time here
Than climbing here out West
