Lookout Mountain

United States | Tunnel One | Rock Climbing Clear Creek


This is a very popular crag in Golden as it has easy toprope access and moderate climbing. This wall offers a variety of slab and crack climbs on beautiful metamorphic rock, although most of the routes are guarded by a small roof towards the top, which makes for some fun and challenging finishes to the climbs. There are six toprope anchors, making it very easy to set up a rope. However, be aware that some anchors are over the edge of the cliff, so use caution when setting up ropes. This is a north-facing wall that sits in the shade most of the day. Approach: From the intersection of US-6/CO- 93/CO-58, head southeast on US-6 (away from Clear Creek Canyon) for 1.0 miles and turn right onto 19th Street. Follow the main road as it turns left and then heads up the windy hill, becoming Lookout Mountain Road. After 1.8 miles up (west) Lookout Mountain Road, park on either side of the road. From the parking area, there are trails just north/downhill of the road. The toprope access is about 50 yards from the road. The approach trail to get to the base is on the left (west) side of the wall. Be careful of rattlesnakes.
