New Meetup: Eldorado Springs Canyon

From: Bill
Sent on: Sunday, June 20, 2010 11:13 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for Rock Climbers of Colorado Springs!

What: Eldorado Springs Canyon

When: Tuesday, July 13,[masked]:30 AM

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)

Eldo is a world-renowned climbing destination, which is why we?ll be going there mid-week! It has lots of beautiful multi-pitch trad lines on compact soaring sandstone. We?ll need to do a little pre-event coordination on this one as the climbing will generally require pairing up into groups of 2. This event is best suited to trad leaders. If you do not lead trad that is not necessarily a problem. But we will need to hook leaders up with other competent climbers who can at least clean gear and break down anchors, feel confident on multi-pitch and know how to rappel. When rsvp?ing ?yes? for this event, please post as to whether or not you lead and at what level you lead or follow trad.

We'll meet at Panera?s on Academy Blvd. at 7:30 am as it will take us at least an hour and a half to get to Eldo. Please be on time. 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. 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.

We?ll plan to drive up together but just in case, this is the route for getting to Eldo: 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, we'll continue north onto CO Hwy 93 (Foothills Rd). Continue north and turn left onto Eldorado Springs Dr. (intersection of CO Hwy 170). Continue southwest to the trailhead on the right, just before town. We can dump extra vehicles here if necessary because it's $6 per vehicle to enter the park. Continue through the town of Eldorado Springs to the park entrance.
