I was pretty bummed when they didn't greenlight my "Bourne Identity" style reboot of The Eiger Sanction. This was from the rough draft's first act.

I was at a party last night with some non-climbing friends in Golden who lived underneath the big ht painted "G" on South Table mountain. Climber's left of that, there's a prominent buttress that looks to be about 100' tall or so.

My question: Who owns that property? And have there been efforts made in the past to allow access for development there?

Pretty sure that is Coors property, and I'm pretty sure the rock is of similar quality to it's brethren to the north.

From what I've heard Coors owns it and prosecutes for trespass. I could be wrong.

The real issue is the rail line at the bottom of the mountain. The RR companies are notorious for limiting access.

I do know someone that climbed up there several decades ago and they did liken the quality to that of NTM.

From JeffCo open space website:

"Until recently, only a small portion of the mesa on the east side was owned and managed by Open Space. Conservation Easements acquired from the State of Colorado and the US Department of Energy allow for trail connections. In 2004, Open Space worked through the Trust for Public Lands to acquire Coors Brewing Company holdings on South Table Mountain. Presently, less than 400 acres remain in private ownership."

I suppose development would be dependent on JeffCo's management plan and where the remianing 400 acres of private land is located. Access to at least the top surface area has been open for years (lots of trails up there) for riding mtn bikes and from what I saw apparently motocross as well.

Edit to add: here is a link to the JeffCo climbing management plan.

Yeah, I mean, it's CO, my assumption is generally that there's always going to be someone who's been there, done that on every piece of naked rock in the state.

Not necessarily. You might just have to bush whack... all the low lying fruit has been picked.

Generally speaking....I would say Incorrect.

Lots of cherries to still be popped my friend.

FWIW, I've heard there are a number of routes up there. I've heard they are generally in the 10-11 range.

Mike Morin, JeffCo climbing ranger, may be a good source of info. He's on this website.

tomato, tomotto, kill mike amato.

i did a little bit of climbing up there in the early 90's. in general, the rock gets better the further left you go. i don't remember any bolted routes, we just did some gear protected moderate cracks.
