Winter Climbing in The Red

I used to live in the Midwest and climb occasionally at The Red in the spring and fall. I'm heading home for Christmas for about a week and my brother was thinking about going down to The Red for a few days of climbing. I was wondering if anyone has any words of wisdom on climbing in The Red during ...

Mental Recovery

I'm a sport climber. I do a little trad and bouldering, because they are still climbing and still fun, but at the end of the day I'd always rather do sport. My main beef with bouldering is that when you fall, you hit the ground. It almost seems stupid to me. Fall,hit the ground. Fall, hit the ground...

Re: Climbing Around Colorado Springs

To be honest, I didn't look at Boulder Canyon. Not really sure why either. Maybe it's because I've got some friends up around Denver. I figure they'll have the beta and I'll make it up there from time to time. I don't know anyone around CS, nor do I know anyone who's climbed around CS, so I'm mostly...

Climbing Around Colorado Springs

Hey folks, I recently got a new job and my wife and I will be moving to Colorado Springs in two weeks! I've only been out there for the interview, but that was enough to get me pumped about the move. One of the things I will miss most about The Midwest is climbing at The Red, but I'm sure there will...
