Colorado CLIMBING TRIP REPORTS



This page provides links to my climbing trip reports in Colorado, which so far have been a few trips to Rocky Mountain National Park, a couple of days at the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, and a some random days of cragging in Eldorado and Boulder Canyons. Most of this was in 2018, when I pretty much spent the entire month of July in Colorado climbing. There is just so much awesome climbing in this state—I hope to return several times in the future. (I am currently in the process of applying to a PhD in Applied Mathematics at University of Colorado Boulder, so Colorado might become my new home state...)
