New Western Slope Guidebooks in the Works

I wanted to get the word out that there are new guidebooks currently in the works for the Western Slope. Yes, that’s books, plural, because it’s going to be a two part volume. Rifle will have it’s own book (volume 1), and then the rest of the crags in the area will have their own.

So how can you help? We need feedback! Put up some new routes? Develop a new crag you want to share with the world? Think something is sandbagged/dangerous/soft/fun/lame and want to see it changed in the new guides? Now is the time to speak up and be heard.

Send any and all comments to us via the Contact Form, we’re hoping to make these two books even better, and the non-Rifle book will again feature many routes and crags that were previously unpublished. Right now this could include the following:

Coal Creek
Low Hanging Fruit
Crystal Tower

F-Pan (Skillet & Upper)
Lime Creek

Glenwood Canyon

East Elk (Hogwarts/Granite)
Main Elk (Pup Tent/Burro/Fortress/West Fortress)

A teaser of some of the new crags for the new book:

Crystal River limestone.

The Upper Frying Pan is a special place.

  4. Can’t stand the wait: please please please reveal the location of the Crystal River limestone. I’ve looked every where for even a mention and haven’t found anything.

Bulldog Creek Dog Walk (IV WI 4+)

Hayden Carpenter and Tom Bohanon recently repeated an obscure ice climb on the south side of Mt Sopris. Given a brief mention in Jack Robert’s ice guide, Bulldog Creek Walk is described as being 100 meters of WI 4. What they found was seven pitches of ice in a remote setting that makes for one […]
