Hey fellow vertical commando's- What is the best area/formation in either Denver or Colorado Springs(pref Springs), for a night climb with a city light view?

Accessability, legality and descent matter. well at least access and descent, lol.....GO!

You shouldn't climb at night. It's dark and therefore dangerous. knowbuddy

I was going to suggest the second Flat Iron, or Der Zerkle. But pretty much the Flatirons are good for night climbing.

But the climbing sucks. So, Shane, what is your priority?

The access? The route? Legality? View of city lights?

Flatirons are great. Some routes in Eldo are good too, but not quite legit, the diamond gets some city lights, and lots of routes at Red Rocks Nevada get great city lights.
