Welcome to the Western Slope, the REAL Colorado. Take your pick of limestone, sandstone, or granite; sport climbs, trad cracks, 600-foot multi-pitch routes. Rope up one minute from your car, or hike a scenic trail to a more remote crag. You name it! Sick of the crowds at Front Range crags? Then Western Slope climbing is calling your name.
