Western Sloper – Western Colorado Rock Climbs – Vol. 2 (2nd ed)
Welcome to the Western Slope, the REAL Colorado. Take your pick of limestone, sandstone, or granite; sport climbs, trad cracks, 600-foot multi-pitch routes. Rope up one minute from your car, or hike a scenic trail to a more remote crag. You name it! Sick of the crowds at Front Range crags? Then Western Slope climbing is calling your name. Seek out the hundreds of great routes you’ve never heard of in this updated guidebook, Western Sloper.
- Carbondale Area: Thompson Creek, the Narrows, Redstein, and the Marble area.
- Glenwood Springs Area: Puoux, the Neighborhood, No Name, the Mudwall, and other Glenwood Canyon crags.
- Basalt Area: The Eldo-like rock of the F-Pan and the limestone (and great camping) of Lime Creek.
- New Castle Area: The popular Pup Tent and Main Elk, Hogwarts, and Rifle Arch.
Tempted yet? The areas may be new to you, but the information in this expanded second edition is tried and true, Wolverine style. At-a-glance grade breakdowns. Sport, trad, and mixed climbs are each color coded. Extensive mapping throughout the text. For after the climbing day, get the beta on camping, hot springs, local towns, and restaurants. In short, you’ll find everything you need in the Western Sloper guidebook. And as you browse, be inspired by the sweet action photography that has made Wolverine books famous.
Yes, Rifle is in the region defined by this book, but we created a separate book just to cover this special area, Rifle Mountain Park.
