The Glen Comfort crag is located on a relatively small rib of rock located in the National Forest on the north side of US Highway 34 above the now closed (washed away?) Glen Comfort Indian store. There is no public access from the area near the store, so please approach from the Forest access road as described below. Even though the crag is fairly close to the road, it is tucked between unique rock formations and feels secluded. There is a pretty good variety of climbing styles. Everything from low a angle hand crack on Lil Sadie (5.7) to the steep, slab flake climbing and the technical, powerful moves over the steep bulge on Dark Holler(11c).
From Estes Park, drive down US Hwy 34 about 3 and a half miles east of Mall Rd past the now closed (washed away?) Glen Comfort Indian Store on the right and Noels Draw (road) on the right. Take the next dirt drive on the left (with a stone post) just around a left bend in the highway. Follow it to the National Forest access at the road's end.

Climb the obvious hand crack until the angle eases. At this point step left across the slab to another crack and follow it to the top and build a gear anchor. Variation. The original route went straight up the same crack where it gets wide, all the way to the top. There is no good protection possible in that section but the climbing is not hard. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
