Announcing a new Meetup for Rock Climbers of Colorado Springs!What
: Clear Creek CanyonWhen
: Tuesday, August 3,[masked]:00 AMWhere
: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
Let's do a weekday at Clear Creak Canyon in Golden and we just might have the wall to oueselves! We will plan on climbing again at the Canal Zone, which has several well-bolted routes in the 5.7 to 5.9 range, as well as plenty of .10s. Since we have been to the Canal Zone twice, we will also consider continuing up the canyon to Catslab or Highwire, depending on the ability and size of the group. Catslab is a smaller crag with a route makeup similar to the Canal Zone; Highwire has fewer easier moderates but lots of .9's and .10's! Check it out on Mountain Project and indicate in your rsvp which wall you prefer.
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/#mvt=m&lat=[masked]&lon=[masked]&zoom=17&q1=7344%20N%20Academy%20Blvd.%2C%20Colorado%20Springs%2C%20CO&gid1=[masked]
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 park in the first lot (on the left, not far past the stop light).
Anyone coming from Denver/Boulder/points north, please meet us at the parking lot for the Canal Zone no later than 9:30 am.
