always a good time on this lovely, shorter mountain. until next time.
went there for some winter climbing. Topped out the last route and summited.
Climbed here all day, in the snow, but the sun was out, so it was nice. A lot of the routes were waterfalls, but we found a few dry fun ones. Topped out at the end of the day and walked around the summit area for a bit.
We made a nice circuit up a little desert couloir then around to the high point and bushwacked back down to our truck. It was an insanely warm and sunny January day.
....climbing here. We did quite a few routes. I'll definitely be visiting this winter.
Climbed South Table, Castle Rock L and then North Table with Shanahan96, Jamie and Aaron. It was a good way to get out and stretch the legs after having to bail on the Flatirons due to snow.
Surreal landscape on top
Spent time year climbing, finally hiked to top with wife and dog. Pretty neat up there.
Original Post - Climbed (rock) here a number of times. The close proximity to my office and the southern aspect provide a good climbing option after work and in the colder months. Also used the trails a few times to break in new boots over lunches.
2/17/14 - Climbed with Peakbug on a warm, but windy, day.
Quick hike from the City of Golden trailhead, pass the big water tank and rock quarry. Total time was about an hour. Nice clear, warm January day for a hike. 3/50
Hanging out watching mom & dad & Dan send some sick sport routes.
I live close enough to ride my bike from the house up one side, across the top, and down the other side. I've also hiked up several times from all sides. It's a great place to be when you don't have time to go into the mountains.
My first rock climb. Climbed a route in the overhang area, 5.8
I live right here, so I've been up this about 80 times, but there's a nice 8 or so mile loop from the north TH. Ton's of deer/elk up there! I haven't tried the technical routes, but they are easy to spot along the way. A cool waterfall area on the NE corner of the mountain...pay attention, or you'll miss it!
Climbed a bunch of different routes, even had my first sport lead here, it was only about a 5.6 but hey, gotta start somewhere! We didn't reach the "true" summit, we were just out rock climbing this day.
I recently moved to Colorado this past summer, and was lucky enough to get a spot right under the Table. I could sit on my couch in the evening eating dinner and watch 30+ climbers on the wall. Nice southern face with plenty of broken up lines. Some short pumpy routes, and like everyone said, holds can get greased & "now serving #68". Good close, short workout spot.
Climbed at the golden cliffs many times over that past few years. Some of the routes are super slick and there are always a ton of people, but still a fun place to go if you just have a little time.
30 minutes roundtrip.
Was extremely hot. Nice short routes.
