Love climbing? Enjoy Avery beer? Want to support your local climbing community?
Come to Rocktoberfest at REI Denver! We are celebrating the Front Range Climbing Stewards (FRCS) who have been working hard building local climbing access for years. Avery Brewing is bringing the beer and all proceeds support FRCS (to be clear...drink beer to support climbing access and stewardship). Things to get pumped about: a 5.13 climbing comp (more details and registration link below), music by Discosapien, local beer from Avery Brewing Company, climbing vendors, awesome giveaways, and a presentation by pro-climber: Jonathan Siegrist.
This event is free to the public and we'll have an awesome vendor village with a silent auction (proceeds to the BCC/FRCS) and vendor clinics and giveaways. There will be climbing pros on hand doing clinics, stay tuned for the full schedule of clinics and demos. Come on out and celebrate climbing, stewardship and party with us!
JCOS recently launched a website to host their climbing information:
Boulder Canyon is at the forefront of local climbing stewardship. The myriad and mixed land owners have prevented previous erosion control work of any magnitude. But in 2016 FRCS put in a month of work at Plotinus Wall, which sits on USFS land. Since much of the climbing is on USFS land, this was a ground-breaking project that opens the door to much-needed work throughout the canyon.
Since then we have done a major crag inventory and have ranked them based to popularity and need (results below). During this process representatives of BCC walked and gathered GPS coordinates for many crag approaches in the canyon, and generated these awesome Boulder Canyon climbing maps (thanks Marty Petach and Roger Briggs for the big effort):
