Route Climbed: Standard Trail  Sucess!

Nice and fun solo hike. Fun descent down a shallow wide crack that took me straight back down to the trail.

Route: Standard  Sucess!

I have hiked this many times, it is my favorite day hike out of Fort Collins. My dog loves the scrambling near the top.

The Rock  Sucess!

1st climbed in '98 with my 14 year-old son, many times since. A nice hike and climb. Best time from Sep thru May. Rattlesnakes can be an issue as well as poison ivy down low in the summer. Small pond on top can provide pumpable water. Every time I climb it I think about the boy that disappeared from the trail near the top back in the 70's.

Very warm hike/scramble up. Soaking in the Cache La Poudre River at the end was quite nice.

Route Climbed: Various (4th class - 5.8) Date Climbed: Various  Sucess!

I really enjoy climbing here. The rock is fantastic granite and there are rarely any crowds. Ihave yet to try the bolted lines on the formation but I'm sure that will happen in the not too distant future. Nice summit. It has a bit of an alpine feel to it, similar to the Piz Baddile (sp?).

Route Climbed: The Greatest Route on Greyrock (5.8) Date Climbed: May 27th, 2005  Sucess!

Climbed "Not the Greatest Route" and "The Greatest Route" in one long hot day. Tons of fun! Should've brought a third liter of water..

Route Climbed: Mixed Date Climbed: August 24, 2003  Sucess!

Matt and I calculated that we covered a total of about 7 miles and 2,300 vertical in 3 hours car to car. We took the longer meadows route on the way down to get some added distance!! Soloing the face is a blast! For a good combo trip check out the Cliff Jumping!

Route Climbed: by trail Date Climbed: 26 June 2003  Sucess!

It was a fine sunny day but not too hot. There is very nice rock on this summit, good for scrambling or more serious routes. Look out for poison ivy on the lower parts of the trail. This was my first summit of the year.

Route Climbed: Standard and Secret Date Climbed: Several times, 1980-2000  Sucess!

A great place for a hike, especially spring and fall. Lots of wildlife, great birding, flowers. There are even some rocks to clamber around. One of the best little mountains around.

The secret route: if you approach Greyrock from the Meadows (west of the rock) , instead of taking the main trail, there is a great 4th class route to the top. Just head for the rock, and follow the path of least resistance. I've only done it once, I'm not sure I can find it again, but its there.
