Come wind down our local summer outdoor climbing season with a weekend in Elevenmile Canyon. Not far from Colorado Springs, Elevenmile Canyon State Recreation Area is a bit of a hidden local gem. This gorgeous, winding river canyon, lined by huge granite domes sits just below the dam and reservoir at Elevenmile State Park. The many domes and rock faces offer high quality single pitch sport routes as well as longer multi-pitch trad routes. Many of the crags are short walks or even roadside with a short stroll to the river to cool off when the climbing is done. If summer outdoor climbing weekends are what you love, you don’t want to miss this one! Once this trip is done, we’ll be changing gears to our fall climbing programs as well as sharpening all of the ice climbing gear up for a winter of fun!
*Please Note: For this trip, Paradox Sports will be providing the rock climbing and any necessary climbing and camping gear. Participants and assistants are expected to be self-sufficient for food and water for the weekend. We will be camping in dispersed, BLM land with no running water or bathroom facilities.
Price: *Free! (See note below) Registration is required and will be on a first come first serve basis for this program.
*There is a $9/day fee for each car entering Elevenmile that participants will need to pay that is cash only. Since we will be camping outside of the park, we can coordinate carpooling into Elevenmile each day to cut down on how many cars are paying.
