Route Climbed: Many Date Climbed: Various  Sucess!

Great after work spot. This place actually scares me more than Eldo. A lot of the falls are not clean, poor bolt placement on "certain" routes and the slick rock. But I'm not complaining. . .I'll take what I can get so I'll take this! Lots of runins with rattlers out here. Watch your step and remember, you're in their home.

Great sport climbs! Most of the routes that I did were 5.7 to 5.8, nothing too hard. great views of the brewery below.

Route Climbed: Ptarmigan and Peery Roads Trailhead Date Climbed: March 2003  Sucess!

Literally out my front door, this is a fun, historic little hike that takes you up a solidified volcanic flow to an exceptional overlook of Golden on one side and Denver metro on the other. On the plateau summit, it is amazing to see such expansive, undeveloped land so close to Denver. You may even see the herd of deer that inhabits this mountain. Cheers to Table Mountains Conservation Fund for keeping this area protected. Don't forget about South Table Mountain either; its 'summit' called Castle Rock has the distinction of being the destination of the old Funicular Railway that used to bring visitors to a dance hall in the sky! Only a few interesting remnants remain. All you need for TH info here:

Route Climbed: Some routes to the left of where the trial meets the cliff. Date Climbed: August 2003  Sucess!

Went to see some friends in CO. Instead of taking us to Eldorado canyon, they took us here where we suffered in the thick humid summer air and sun, instead of the cool shady canyon. The routes seemed fun, though my heatstroke blocked out the details. Meanwhile, the COORS brewery churned away directly below us, making the stifling atmosphere a little 'sweeter'.

For Pacific Northwest climbers, this is the same old familiar basalt, as can be found around Horsetheif Butte, Vantage, Beacon rock, or 2 Sisters. If you travel to CO to sample different climbing, head to Eldo!
