Climbing Roadtrip to Colorado

  • Sundance Buttress

    Devil's Gultch Rd, Estes Park, CO (map)

    40.406560 -105.551180

  • OK! After speaking with a bunch of old climbing friends and TCRC members Estes Park has been chosen for the trip. First, check out this panorama picture of Estes that shows off all the insane multipitch to choose from:

    The drive will only take about 13 hours and (depending on the number of climbers) will cost some where between $50 and $100 each for gas. The only other expense would be camp sites if we are not allowed to camp for free in the State Forest but that is still being researched. Most of the climbing will be grade ii and iii trad between 5.7 and 5.9 (or higher). Here are two routes on the "must do" list:

    Kohr's Flake [masked], 800 feet)

    and

    Pear Buttress [masked] feet)

    If you are interested add a comment, rsvp, or pm me. This trip duration doesn't matter much and we will spend as little money as necessary so don't let a lack of funds hold you back. Post any questions or ideas you may have.

    Jordan, haha I agree! The length of this trip really depends on the group. I personally would be happy with two full days of climbing (BUT MORE IS BETTER!). Example: Day 1 - meet, pack car, drive to Estes, set up camp, maybe do some single pitch before sleeping. Day 2 - climb a long route, finish the day with a classic 2 or 3 pitch route. Day 3 - climb another all day route. Day 4 - pack camp, climb a short classic, and drive home. Again, it just depends on what everyone else wants to do.
