GOLDEN ROCK CLIMBING
Simply put, Golden rocks when it comes to rock climbing. The city and surrounding area are a rock climber’s paradise with some of the region’s most impressive indoor and outdoor options.
North Table Mountain is one of the more popular spots to rock climb and boasts numerous bolted moderate and easy routes that are easy to top rope. Climbers enjoy the Golden Cliffs almost year round because of the Southern exposure.
Clear Creek Canyon is another nearby popular spot to climb, and better suited for moderate climbers. Beginners may want to start elsewhere.
Lookout Mountain Crag is according to rockclimbing.com, a great place to bring your newbie friends. It’s not big, but offers some pretty fun moderate routes.
