As one of the oldest climbing areas in Colorado, the Platte has been steeped in local lore and legend for more than a century. Routes like Center Route (5.9) and Wunsch's Dihedral (5.11b), widely regarded as two of the best multipitch routes in the state, merely represent the tip of the iceberg. With the addition of hundreds of new routes, previously undocumented domes and crags, and better beta for the old classics, areas formerly shrouded in mystery, discussed in hushed conversations and documented on bar napkin topos will become accessible to anyone ready for an adventurous day of climbing. The release of this upcoming color guide, chock-full of description photos and pitch-by-pitch route breakdowns, will eliminate the navigational debacles and frustrating epics created by sketchy info and hand-drawn topos. Climbers can now stop the pointless bushwacking and start exploring the Platte’s hidden gems. Of the 3,000 routes in the South Platte, 1600 of them are described in this volume. Stay posted for the southern volume!
