About This Activity

Each Friday we offer a discounted guided climb of one of Eldorado Canyon's amazing classics.

Prerequisites: 5.7 climber with multi-pitch experience.

Note: Climb is not predetermined. We pick a climb that best suits the group. Such climbs include:

Bastille Crack:
100' from the parking areas and one of the most visible, historic, and superb routes in the canyon. Also a good introduction to Eldorado grading - hard and sustained for 5.7.
Area Information: the Bastille
Rating: 5.7

An excellent introduction to Eldorado Canyon climbing. After a five-minute approach, Calypso combines crack and face climbing with a crux second pitch bulge. Most walk off after three pitches.

Rewritten climbs to a gorgeous summit in six pitches of hand jams, face moves, and unforgettable exposed traverses - a great route.
Area Information: Redgarden Wall
Rating: 5.7 or 5.8
Pitches: 6

Exceptionally sustained for the grade, six of the eight pitches climb 5.7 or 5.8. A big route with an involved approach and descent, amazing traverses on pitches four and seven.

Yellow Spur:
Several times voted "best climb in Boulder". The Yellow Spur is a big route with a complicated descent. Exposure, gymnastic movement, thin technical face climbing, a beautiful summit - as good as it gets.
