What we're about

Welcome to Rock Climbers of Colorado Springs, a group where local climbers can meet for fun, friendship and adventure; a place to find climbing partners and explore the great areas that Colorado has to offer. Whether you are an experienced climber rocking the sharp end, someone wanting to learn the sport, or anyone else in between, all skill levels are welcome!

New climbers please go to the Message Board under the Discussions tab and read the posts "Note for local climbing events" and "Note for climbers new to the sport."

New members please note: You have 30 days free membership to come to events and check us out. After that you are expected to pay your one-time membership dues of $10. PLEASE DO NOT SET UP RECURRING PAYMENTS. I will mark you as exempt once you have paid the initial $10. That will entitle you to indefinite membership in RCCS. I use the term "indefinite" because there may come a time in the future when funds begin to run out. If that happens, I may need to request further payment from existing members. But so long as we continue to grow all members will be able to enjoy this group without paying anything beyond the initial fee. If dues are not paid after 30 days your profile will be deleted from this site. Thank you for your understanding.

Disclaimer: Rock climbing is inherently dangerous. It is your responsibility to know what you are doing and to practice safe climbing at all times. By joining this group you consent to hold only yourself responsible for any injury that may come as a result of your participation in this group.

Devil's Head - Wipeyur Buttress

Woodmen Road Park-n-Ride

Newbies are welcome but keep in mind the easiest route here is a single 5.8 sport route. There are five 5.9's, six 5.10's, three 5.11's, five 5.12's and one 5.13. There are no amenities so bring your own teepee, food, water, sunscreen, climbing shoes, harness, helmet, quickdraws and rope. We will park in the main parking lot and take the tourist path over to the buttress.

Climbing at Garden of the Gods!

Garden of the Gods

We'll go to Kindergarten Rock because shade! Meet at the South-East lot... This is the lot that is just south of the main entrance from 30th street- so if you enter at 30th street you get to drive ALL the way around. But you'd have to at the end, anyway.. Bring rope and gear if you have it. Make sure to sign up for the climbing permit on the garden website! If the rock is wet we'll move to City Rock
