Product Description

Taken from book's description...

"Rock Climbing Colorado is the only guide available that covers all the major climbing areas in the Centennial State, with routes ranging from 5.0 to 5.14—including the big cliffs and faces of Rocky Mountain National Park, the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, and the smaller crags and outcrops of Pikes Peak, Boulder, Rifle, Shelf Road, and Eleven Mile Canyon. In all thirty-seven areas covered, the book provides first-hand overviews and climbing histories, route beta and topos, detailed maps, and photos. Also included are suggestions for equipment and approach and descent information as well as listings for shops, gyms, and guide services.

This new edition is a complete revamp of what already was considered the essential guide for Colorado rock climbers. Stewart Green has revisited, explored, and documented nearly all of the book’s 1,500-plus routes, updated all of the beta, and added hundreds of new routes developed since the first edition almost fifteen years ago. The new edition is full-color throughout, with color topos detailing each route."


This book has numerous classic routes from all over the state and is an excellent choice to have living in your car. Stewart has provided excellent photos and descriptions to go along with the routes. Whatever level you climb, there are many routes to suit all abilities.

Great resource!!!
This book has an encyclopedic amount of information in it. All the major areas in the state are covered and many of the classic routes are as well. The photos, description and sheer quantity of climbing makes this an excellent resource to just leave in your car.
