Climbing in Shelf Road

With crisp limestone in the banana belt an hour south of Colorado Springs this is the best sport climbing destination for southern Front Range climbers all year round. This quiet canyon has such an abundance of climbs there is something for everyone and new climbs are being developed all the time. While it is an ideal destination for those learning to sport climb it also is good for anyone wanting to transition from the gym to the outdoors or their first time outside. Because the canyon walls face many different directions there are pleasant temperatures to be found any time of year but winter is still our favorite time to come here owing to a slightly lower altitude. Nothing like pulling on pocketed limestone in the warm winter sun and with easy approaches and camping nearby it's no wonder it's so well known amongst Front Range climbers.
