Climbing in or Near Rocky Mountain National Park

It is home to 4.2 million visitors a year, but you can still escape the crowds in the backcountry. Lumpy Ridge has the densest number of climbs in one area. The south-facing ridge extends about two miles, with mostly traditional (gear) routes ranging from 5.7 to 5.12. The classics congregate in the middle zone, 5.9-5.10. The granite cracks chew up your skin, so be sure to tape up.

Venture into the backcountry and commit yourself with multi-pitch high alpine routes at 12,000+ feet above sea level. Classics include the North Ridge of Spearhead (5.6) and the Casual Route (5.10a) on Longs Peak’s 900-foot face, the Diamond. Local hero Tommy Caldwell put up an intricate and technical test piece above Chasm Lake for the hardy sport climber, l, Sarchasm, (5.14a).
