Dillon Reservior holds a
special place in my heart because it is where I was introduced to "Rock
Climbing". Back in College one of my friends (who had his own climbing
gear) taught me how to belay and climb. So in a pair of vans and borrowed
harness, I realized the joy of climbing. Years later I realized that Dillon's
short blocky face was better suited for bouldering rather than roped accents.
Every trip to Colorado, I make the pilgramage to this little bouldering
The rock is blocky and occasionally loose, but landings are typically
clear, there are very few overhanging faces, but the access is very easy.
Located at the entrance of the Prospector/Windy
this area is acessed via a short hiking path.
From Frisco, head south on US-9 towards Brekenridge. Continue several
miles tothe interesction of US-9 and Swan Mountain Rd. Turn Left here

national forest campground and look for the foot path just right of the
gate. Follow the foot path to uphill to the access point.

to stay overnight. The gate is closed, so please DO NOT park in front of
