Rock Climbing Clear Creek

Kevin Capps
updated June 2019

Clear Creek Canyon has long since been a go-to after work and weekend destination crag for both the Denver and Boulder climbing community, and with the explosion of route development, the area is only becoming more popular. With nearly 30 new crags and over 300 new routes since the first edition of this book, Clear Creek continues to produce high quality routes and is in the running for one of the best sport climbing areas on the Front Range. The new routes encompass a wide variety of skill levels, so whether you're looking for a new 5.13 project, or wanting to romp up a fun 5.6 multi-pitch, this canyon won't disappoint. With nearly 1,100 routes, spanning all grades, you’ll have to decide what’s better - ticking your old project or picking a new one from all the classic options in this book.
