Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 books 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.

Synopsis:

This book is the only guide available that covers all the major climbing areas in the state with routes ranging from 5.0 to 5.14.

Synopsis:

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.
