This is an excellent route that climbs the dihedral to the right of Article 15 and the face above it. There is no pro above the dihedral (bolts to come soon), but the climbing is slabmazing. The crux is moving from the dihedral onto the face....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Do you have to be a Zoomy to climb here?

No, but there may be times when the base is closed, and there may be areas you shouldn't access (follow posted signs). Visitors are usually welcome on the Academy grounds during "normal" hours, for example, there is a visitor center that is open to the public, you can attend sporting events and parades, etc. There is a nice hiking trail to the summit of Eagle's Peak that anyone can do. You might have to show your driver's license at the gate, but the guards should be professional and friendly.

Are any nice looking rock structure open for climbing, or is there a designated area that the public is allowed to develop climbing on the AFA property?
