In the last couple of years, climbers in the Roaring Fork Valley of Colorado have taken to developing the various crags that surround the area, though the history of rock climbing here goes back at least 40 years, and longer on the high peaks. With its myriad crags, variety of rock, and ease of access, the Roaring Fork Valley has quietly become one of western Colorado’s great climbing resources.
In many places across the United States, an increase in usage has led to access issues and in some cases closures of climbing resources. Our backyard is no exception. The Roaring Fork Climbers' Coalition (RFCC) seeks to promote climbing and preserve access to cliffs in the Roaring Fork Valley and surrounding area.
You can read our mission statement, or find out about the latest access issues affecting climbing areas in our valley. We've also got a section detailing specific rules and regulations regarding the local BLM and Forest Service. The community resources section can point you towards more information about local climbing and the area in general.
Please contact us if you have any questions.
