Shelf Road Trip!

Posted on Updated on


Shelf Road Team Trip!

January 3-5, 2013

Join Team ABC at sunny Shelf Road for three days of fun limestone sport climbing.

Shelf Road has the best concentration of safely bolted sport routes in the state, from 5.easy to 5.12.  This area is called the “Banana Belt” of Colorado.  Often, when the rest of the state is chilly and covered in snow, Shelf Road is sunny and perfect for climbing.

We will be staying in a local hotel, eating at restaurants and having our breakfasts and lunches made by the yummy Coyote Café.

Cost: $400 per client

Cost Includes:

3 days of guiding climbing

Transportation to and from Shelf Road

Private room for 2 nights at a local hotel

Dinner at a restaurant both nights

Breakfast and lunch made at the Coyote Café both days

Sign up – ABC KIDS CLIMBING Portal

Also there is still space for the Winter Hueco Trip. Don’t miss it!
