dude, you might as well figure on multiple trips just to get a good taste of the great climbing in the rocky mountain state. you could easily spend the rest of your life climbing there.

try a trip to one area for a couple weeks like the boulder area and hit the flat irons, eldo, boulder canyon, just to name a few

then a trip to co springs area and try the south platte, garden of the gods, shelf road.

then maybe a trip to the western slope: rifle mtn park, unaweep canyon, escalante canyon.

if you have a lot of time, no problem you could spend months in every area and 100 more. I won't even get into the ice, alpine, and mountain climbing. don't procrastinate, Colorado is truly a climbers paradise.

Finding good climbing is the easy part. If you want to climb here, make it happen. "Soon" is not a plan.

Heading up the best pitches of the route. Perfect rock at a nice relaxed angle!

Slightly more off of the beaten path but just as good and a great overall adventure is the Maiden. Located in the Southern region of the Flatirons it offers fun climbing to an unforgettable summit. Get on it!

Where's Waldo?

Lumpy Ridge is the best rock I have ever felt on my hands. And it's incredibly gorgeous. Tons of good options there.

Great links! I have been wanting to do the knife ridge on Capital Peak. I may look in that general area.

You used to be able to get this list in hard or soft copy from Neptunes, but here's their alpine tick list. I do have an e-copy if you want it you can PM me.
