Climbing in Estes Park

The Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park area is famous for a wide range of technical climbs that take you to the top of the world.   Many outdoor enthusiasts feel that the ultimate challenge to mind and body is rock climbing.   Roosevelt National Forest and the Big Thompson Canyon also have some great climbing opportunities. If you would like to learn more about this sport, climbing classes are available. If, on the other hand, you would rather watch than take part, you can see climbers at a number of close-by locations like the Lumpy Ridge area north of town.
