The First Flatiron  Photo: Exum Senior Guide Tom Sciolino A climber nearing the top of the First Flatiron, a beautiful and long, classic climb that reaches the summit.  From the top there are wonderful views of Boulder to the East and the high mountains to the West.  The climb is ten pitches of 5.6 climbing and its a great day on the rock.
The Wind Ridge  Photo: Exum Senior Guide David Bowers Exum Senior guide Tom Sciolino, leading the final pitch of the Wind Ridge.  A three pitch Eldorado classic at 5.6 that climbs high above the canyon floor.  It offers a wide variety of climbing and great views of the canyon from the summit.
The Bastille Crack  Photo: Exum Senior Guide Tom Sciolino The most popular climb in Colorado, The Bastille Crack, 5.7, is located in Eldorado Canyon State Park.  Five great pitches of crack climbing will get you high above the canyon floor and to the top of the Bastille.  There you will have great views of the city of Boulder as well as the entire canyon.  It is not to be missed.
