South Platte and Jazz Dome.

Be considerate MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Jazz Dome is a slab overlooking the North Fork of the South Platte just west of the small town (and rocks) of Dome Rock. It's south- and east-facing and has a few bolted slab routes.

Hubbel is mistaken concerning the access to this rock. There is private property very close to the rock, but the rock itself is located on Denver Water property and you can access the rock without trespassing. Denver Water claims to have no objections to climbing at Jazz. It also seems as if the current residents are much more laid back than Hubbel's supposed weapons brandishing owner. Message me for details.


Getting There 

From the intersection of Platte River Road and S. Foxton Road, drive just under 2.5 miles east. Just past a driveway on the left, park in a bend in the river on the right. Cross the road and do the short hike to the rock. You can see it from the road.

Featured Route For Jazz Dome
I started on the slab on the left edge of the picture to avoid the Poison Ivy.  Then move right and up and follow the bolt line.

This is pretty much the same description as Lynn's Route just a little more difficult and a little more interesting. This could be a nice, lower level, slab lead with new bolts and an anchor. As is, it should be considered R/X. If top roping, be very careful of the loose rock during setup. We used approximately 150 feet of rope and slings to top rope off of trees....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Fun routes to take young kids on. That said, bolts should be updated.
