Denver climbers have lots of great rock options. Table Mountain / Golden Cliffs offer excellent single-pitch routes, both sport and trad, all close to the city and with easy access. Clear Creek Canyon in Golden has hundreds of routes, from overhanging roofs to slabby scrambles. Oh and let's not forget the wealth of climbing down the road in Boulder, where Boulder Canyon, Eldorado Canyon and The Flatirons all embody some of the very best rock in the world. Denver also has several excellent indoor gyms to choose from right in the city: Movement, Thrill Seekers and Rock N' Jam'n all offer modern, safe facilities with both bouldering and vertical climbing options. And though it's about 90 minutes away, the legendary alpine routes in Rocky Mountain National Park are close enough to warrant a trip for aspiring climbers, including the famous Diamond Face on Longs Peak.
