Horsetooth Rocks' West face.
This area is mostly trad, but bouldering does exist here. Bolting is looked down on by the park staff and is not allowed. It is shady in the morning and sunny in the afternoon depending on which side of the mountain you're on. The climbing on the east side of the mountain is of poor quality, and the west side is of great quality. There is lots of climbing for all levels, but it is not a good place for beginners.
A fee does exist to get into the park, unless you buy a yearly pass for $65.
This is the MAIN ATTRACTION for tourists, other than the breweries, so please be kind and respectful to the hikers.
Also be very careful when climbing the rock's west face as you may have spit, gatorade bottles, or beer cans raining down on your head. SO, WEAR A HELMET.
