Overview

The birthplace of American rock climbing, Colorado provides a greater variety of rock and routes than any other state—and Rock Climbing Colorado is the only guidebook available to all its major climbing areas. This new edition is fully updated with hundreds of new routes, making what already was considered the essential guide for Colorado rock climbers even better. Stewart M. Green has explored and documented all of the routes, revisiting those covered in the previous edition; updated the beta; and rephotographed the entire book. Included are the big cliffs and faces of Rocky Mountain National Park and the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, as well as the smaller crags and outcrops of Pikes Peak, Boulder, Rifle, Shelf Road, Elevenmile Canyon, and many more. All areas covered include first-hand overviews, route descriptions, topos, and full-color photos. Rock Climbing Colorado is ideal for anyone aiming to discover, or rediscover, the diverse and wonderful rock climbing found in the Centennial State.
