by Bennett Scott
Located northwest of Fort Collins, CO, the Poudre Canyon is home to some of the highest quality sport climbing and bouldering in Colorado. Long considered a rock climbing area only frequented by locals who didn't want to drive to 'better climbing' elsewhere in the state, author Bennett Scott and many others have spent the last several decades putting that myth to rest with the development and documentation of some of the hardest, proudest, cleanest, and most inspiring climbing routes to be found anywhere in Colorado.
Ten years have passed since the 2nd Edition of the Poudre Canyon Guidebook was released and things have been anything but quiet. New routes and boulder problems have been established on a weekly basis - the climbing here just keeps getting better and better. Perhaps you live in Fort Collins and just want to get out for a pleasant day of shady bouldering. Or maybe you're looking to explore something new with a weekend of beautiful camping, cragging, and bouldering. The Poudre has something to offer everyone, so join the author on a journey through 50 miles of breathtaking cliffs and boulders that are climbable all year long!Table of Contents
