Announcing a new Meetup for Rock Climbers of Colorado Springs!What
: Clear Creek CanyonWhen
: Tuesday, September 21,[masked]:00 AMWhere
: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
Let's do another weekday at Clear Creak Canyon in Golden before the snows begin to fall. This time we're going to try another wall: Highwire Crag. Please note that Highwire has one 5.7 and one 5.8; everything else is 5.9 and above. If you climb at this level there are plenty of nice routes to be had. In addition to the moderates there are several .10's and a couple .11's for your sport climbing pleasure.
We'll meet at Panera?s on Academy Blvd. at 8:00 am. Panera's is close to the interstate and you can get good coffee and a breakfast snack there, if so inclined (please show up early if buying something there). The address is 7344 N Academy Blvd. http://maps.yahoo.com..
. That?s about halfway between Briargate Blvd and Woodmen Rd, on the west side of the street just north of Collins Rd. Since it tends to get busy in there, let?s meet up in the parking lot. Look for my burgundy Dodge Stealth R/T.
We?ll plan to drive up together but just in case, this is the route for getting to CCC: I-25 north to Denver; CO Hwy 470 west; the 470 ends at US Hwy 6. Follow US 6 north; at CO Hwy 58 the 6 turns to the west (at a stop light). Turn left to stay on the US Hwy 6 and drive to the second
tunnel (4.9 miles past the first tunnel). Park before the bridge, on the NORTH side of the road, the side nearest the creek a few hundred yards to the east. Be careful - the road shoulders are small.
Anyone coming from Denver/Boulder/points north, please meet us at the parking area for Highwire no later than 9:30 am.
