Climbing

When we were high school kids (late 1960s/early 1970s), my brother and I used to climb these rocks whenever we felt like it. The big crack in the rock above was a favorite, easy climb. Our favorite was to climb up and wait for the shadow of Pikes Peak (directly to the west) to reach us in the late afternoon. Then we climbed down. It was no big deal. Now you need a permit and technical equipment.

    • It’s better this way, not just to stop lawsuits, but because the city has grown a LOT since I was a kid. It’s better for the rocks to have fewer people climbing around on them.

  1. It’s a wonder any of us survived our childhood without rules and regulations to protect us! 😃🐻
