About Clear Creek Canyon:

Clear Creek canyon is located about twenty minutes west of Denver and minutes from Golden. Very good climbing if you climb 5.12-5.14d with a host of new moderates that will keep a 5.10 leader busy. Most approaches take minutes with the logest being a half hour or so, alot of the approaches are a little sketchy with some being downright dangerous most are between 2nd and 4th class. The area's on this page are ordered from east to west with The Sport Wall being the farthest east and Primo Wall being the farthest west.
Nearest town or city: Golden
Directions: Find 6th avenue and take it west to Golden as you skirt golden on 6th you will come to a light that intersect's highways 93, 58, and 6th avenue you will turn left (west) and follow that to your climbing area. All routes are contained in a ten mile stretch of the canyon before US 6 intersects with I-70.
