ST. VRAIN CANYONS Climbing


When driving westward towards Estes Park from the town of Lyons, you have to make a choice. Turn right, and drive HWY 36 through North St. Vrain Canyon or turn left and drive HWY 7 through South St. Vrain Canyon. Either way is a nice drive. But what is lesser known is the some 750 climbing routes on over 150 rock formations above the road. The rock is granitic, and the climbing ranges from sport to trad, single pitch to a few pitches in height, shade or sun, and only a short hike from the car. Although perhaps not as classic as other popular climbing areas, many of the routes are of good quality. The St. Vrain is a great place to escape the crowds.

December Wall.

The first time I climbed in the St. Vrain area was in May 2020. Upon recommendation from a reputable source (thanks Bernard!), we checked out December Wall. 

Since I'm sure I'll climb again at this area, I just keep a list of the climbs I've done there (on this page). Below the list, I've also included my original trip report from the first day I climbed here (made to establish this page on my website), and below that I have photos from subsequent random days of cragging at various locals in the St. Vrain.
