  • I plan on hitting shelf road quite a bit this winter and already have been doing so. This is my 3rd week in a row. Here's the catch, I only go mid- week. I will be there this week on Tuesday and Wednesday so feel free to join! Future weeks are flexible.

    I can't go to shelf this week due to work. The next time I could go would be the week of the 23rd. Let me know if that works

      Cool. Im at[masked]-0900. Also like to climb locally.

      February 14, 2015

  • Charles P.

    Wednesday might work. So we meet at Banks? Do I need to reserve a site? My car is not 4-wheel drive, so is that a problem? How long does it take to drive from Fort Collins? Are you going with a party? I also love climbing at Lumpy. Mainstream my favorite route. Did Femp last fall. Working back into climbing from an injury and looking forward to raising the level this year.

      I'm free Thursday and Friday - I'd like to climb both days if possible.

      February 8, 2015

    • Charles P.

      Emma. seeing that the weather in the area is in the sixties, are you free to climb locally during the weekdays?

      February 14, 2015

  • Matt

    I have never been to shelf, but Really want go! I can go next week

      Hey Matt, can you climb this week?

      February 10, 2015

  • Emma

    Would anyone like to head down to Shelf Thursday and Friday this week, camping overnight?

    February 8, 2015

    • Emma

      You can't make it consistently on Th/F, or just this week?

      February 9, 2015

    • Charles P.

      Just this week. I have a final walk through for a client on Thursday and a closing on Friday.

    John,
    When you planning on heading down to Shelf?

    February 2, 2015

  • Charles P.

    Just picked up the guidebook. $40 after tax. Hope it helps me climb better. :)

  • Emma

    Oh wow, I didn't expect such quick replies! I'm actually in Mexico climbing at Potrero Chico right now. I'm returning next week but would love to head down to Shelf the following week, 2/12-2/13. Anyone interested?

    January 30, 2015

    • Charles P.

      Sure Emma. Love EPC. I am a Realtor so all I need is a few days advance to arrange things.

      January 30, 2015

  • Charles P.

    Hey John or anyone. I just need a few days heads up to arrange work schedule. There is also a yurt with a hot tub that my friend stays at. Camping is great as well and I have, thinking 20 set ups.

    January 30, 2015

  • Charles P.

    I live in Fort Collins.

    January 29, 2015

  • Charles P.

    Let me know what the plan is. [masked] 970_217_0900

  • Emma

    Is this still happening? I have Thursdays/Fridays free and would love regular Shelf outings on a weekly basis!

    John, I'm pretty sure we've met and have maybe messaged in the past. I'm closeish to Fort Collins now.

    Mitesh and anyone else I am shooting for thurs/fri this week. The weather looks beautiful.

    November 3, 2013

  • John W.

    I was going to try for Tuesday/Wednesday but I just looked at the weather and it doesn't look promising...it's going have to be last minute plans if it happens (ie the weather changes).

    I would love to join you, however this week is difficult. Do you plan to go next week? Give me a heads up and I can clear my schedule up for making the trip.

    October 21, 2013

    • John W.

      Hey thanks, I usually make my final plans for the following week by Friday or Saturday based on weather and which days i have off. Does that work for you?

      Yep that works for me. Let's share contact details once the plans are final.

  • John W.

    Btw if you have never been here is a quick breakdown. There are approximately 800+ routes many of which are moderate (5.10 and below). The bolting is generally sensible to close together especially on the newer routes. The approaches vary, but are never strenuous. There are 2 campgrounds which cost $7 a night to stay. There is no running water but there are latrines. The camping areas are secluded and scenic. I usually stay in The Bank Campground. Canyon City is approximately 9 mies away and has several restaurants, groceries, and a Walmart.
