This is the most comprehensive climbing guide to to the low-elevation cliffs surrounding Estes Park, the eastern edge of Rocky Mountain National Park, and surrounding National Forest lands. In this guide you'll find topos and detailed descriptions of multi-pitch traditional crags, slabs, sport areas, toprope areas, and boulders.

Areas covered include: Alligator Rock, Big Thompson Canyon, Cedar Park Slab, Combat Rock, Cow Creek Canyon, the Crags, Deer Ridge Buttress, Deville Rocks, Fall River Road Crags, Glen Haven Picnic Area, Ironclads, Jurassic Park, Kinnikinnik Crags, Lumpy Ridge, MacGregor Slab, the Monastery, Palisades, Piz Badille, Prospect Mountain, Sandbeach Rocks, Spur 66 Crags and more.

The topos aren't as artistic as Rossiter's, but this book covers areas not in Rossiter's book, such as the Monastery, Jurassic Park, and the Ironclads.
