Camp Guide 2011

CityRock will offer three summer camps: Climbing Critters, for kids ages 4 to 5; Indoor Climbing Camp, for kids 6 to 12, who will learn climbing basics and expand their skills; and an Outdoor Climbing Camp for older kids with adventures including belaying, top-roping and bouldering.

Best Of 2010: Indoor Place to Climb

Colorado is famous for several things, but snow and rocks are pretty high on the list. Unfortunately, they're often incompatible. If you love the latter but not the former, befriend CityRock for the winter. Located in the former Ute Theater, the downtown branch has special features like slacklines, rappel caves and dry tooling setups for ice climbers. There's a smaller but similarly accommodating facility in Monument. By the time good weather rolls around again, you may not want to go anywhere else. Gazing into the crystal crampon: Manager Matthew McKinley foresees that next year, "Pikes Peak erupts and gains 200 feet of fine rock climbing at Summit House." — Claire Swinford
