Bouldering at Elkhorn Creek

Ann crimps

I like this spot near Red Feather Lakes. It has solid, sharp, Vedauwoo-style granite boulders and formations in a more expansive feeling foothills setting. We did some fun problems, most too hard for us, but still quite enjoyable along with a night outdoors. We saw only one other climber, who told us there are trad routes up to 5.12 on the rocks above. All the high ratings around here often make me feel like I’m wasting my time climbing. But every time I come back from a trip up the “easy” routes, I can’t think of anything else I would rather have done.
