I am visiting from WA and am looking for some top rope sites that are between 5.5-5.10. I am up in Nederland and was looking at Boulder Canyon and Eldorado for places, but I am a bit overwhelmed with how many routes there are. Any advice on where a beginner to intermediate climber should go in Boulder and surrounding area? I have 3 full days to climb. Thank you!

The book Front Range Topropes can be pretty useful. Also, if you're currently in Nederland, drive down to Neptune Mountaineering in boulder and ask around. Other option is to do a search for topropes in that grade range on mountainproject.com Their route database is pretty robust, especially in the Boulder area.

This is precisely that search. Every single pitch line that is topropable between 5.5 and 5.10a in the Boulder area that's been added to mountainproject.com's route database.

Thank you so much! Your info and advice helped us out very much. One of the days we climbed Animal World in the canyon and it was super fun! Thank you again.
