Clay Creek Crag is a great year round climbing area with 50+ routes, from easy to hard. The best routes are the harder ones, but beginners will have fun here, also. It is beautiful sandstone climbing, mostly sport. 8 quickdraws are recommended, with some trad: 2 sets of nuts and cams recommended.
Go West on CO 145 towards Norwood. Take a right at the bottom of Norwood Hill, just before the bridge on Forest Service Road 510 (530?). A few miles up, park in the large turnout on the left side of road. The trail to crag is across the road. It is a 15 minute approach.

Start with a hard, undercut, deadpoint move. Clipping the first bolt is easier when it is knee level. The rest of the route is great fun with spicy bolt spacing up to the anchors....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
