StreetDoc hahaha well I came from Chicago with Devils Lake being my home climbing area. Anywhere is better than there.

killclimbz Too be honest, with the exception of a few routes, I don't find the trad climbing to be very good in Colorado. But, that is more likely to do with the fact I came from California and got to climb on the bomber granite of Yosemite Valley. The trad climbing was just so much better out there, and still is imo. The sport climbing in Cali is not nearly as good as compared to here. Anyway, there is plenty of both to keep anyone entertained in this state for a life time.

Yellow Spur is a great route, top 5 multi pitch in Colorado almost certainly.
That's true, not to get too sidetracked but you can't mention Boulder without mentioning climbing. I started climbing at red river gorge which is all steep sport in sand stone. Haven't clipped bolts too much since I started trad climbing a couple years ago though, Table just doesn't really do it for me I guess, I'd much rather be on a longer route at Eldo, lumpy, or even south platte. I guess any day outside is better than being in the gym though!

killclimbz If the weather is going to be around 50 degrees, go for a hike in the Flatirons. The Mallory Cave trail will get your heart pumping and it's stunning scenery. Royal Arch, 3rd Flatiron, Fern Canyon are other great hikes in the area.

Visit Eldorado Canyon State Park. Lot's of great hikes there, and it's one of the top 3 climbing mecca's in the United States. Just look up at the sunny walls and you are bound to see someone climbing up there.

Make the quick drive to Golden and take a free tour at the Coors Factory. Or if you just want to skip the tour and get to the free beer, ask for a pass for the "short tour" and go straight to the bar. I believe it's still three free beers. Blue Moon is on top there in addition to the standard Coors fair.

Go ice climbing in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Get a Colfax Hooker in Denver.

Go sled neckin' with Milo and kick him in the nutz...

PowderGirl82 Make sure and hit up backcountry pizza in Nederland, awesome little pizza bar! &, if you didn't know, the green stuff is completely legal within city limits there!
