Rock Climb above Lilly Lake

Lilly Lake - Search Nearby - Added by Eric Schuette

Rock climb on amazing rock in the shadow of Long's Peak and Estes Park. Several of the routes are considered classics. Routes of varying difficulty for all experience levels. Short hike to get above Lilly Lake to the rock climbing area, northwest of the lake.

Lilly Lake is known as a very popular, easy hike in Rocky Mountain National Park. Lilly Lake itself is very pretty and also has some good fishing and walking opportunities.

Rock rises up nearby the northwest area of the lake, and offers some of the most fun rock climbing in the area. There are numerous bolted routes available, which means there is something for every level of climber. Several of the routes are considered classics and can make for a really fun morning, as they are very close together. The views from the top of many of the routes also separate climbing here from most other places along the front range. Longs Peak, the continental divide, as well as views to the north and south are amazing.

Awesome climbing with amazing views

We just did this on Sunday and it was amazing. The views are insane and while there were a lot of other climbers, everyone was so friendly and we were all sharing gear and routes. It is one of the most beautiful places to climb around the front range in my opinion. A little hard to find which path to take to get to the climbing area, but they all lead up to the rocks.
