Clear Creek Canyon
Rock climbing around Denver is among some of the best climbing in Colorado, an experience that draws people from around the world to climb these iconic rock faces. From sport climbing to committing multi-pitches, Denver rock climbing is a great destination for almost every type of climber.
Golden, Colorado’s Clear Creek Canyon and Table Mountain are great destinations for a full or half day trip and have challenging crack and face climbs. These granite, gneiss, schist and basalt single pitch routes offer unique climbing for all ability levels.
Further south of Golden, the Cathedral Spires outside of Conifer, Colorado offer a great full day adventure. The high quality granite is home to fun single pitch climbs, and what most climbers come for are the world class multi-pitch routes. Ascend the iconic Cynical Pinnacle via the Center Route 5.9+, a Colorado classic, or choose from dozens of other challenging climbs.
Other Denver rock climbing options include a trip up the aged sandstone slabs of Boulder’s Flatirons or a relaxing day of top-roping in nearby Chautauqua Park.
Looking for something a little more exciting? Head west to Fruita, CO and spend a night on top of a desert tower with our multi-pitch overnighter climb or take your family to the deserts of Utah for our Moab Desert Adventure.
