South Platte Climbing: The Thunder Ridge and Turkey Rock Edition
by Jason Haas
The next installment in the South Platte Trilogy hones in on some of the most iconic routes with the best climbing in the whole area. Turkey Rock has repeatedly been called a granite Indian Creek and Thunder Ridge has some of the best sport climbing in the Front Range. This volume also includes the surrounding areas of Westcreek, including Sheep Nose, as well as the Big Rock Candy Mountain area. About half the book covers routes and crags that have never been published until now. Whether you want to crag for the day with splitter jam cracks at Turkey, clip bolts out the wildly overhanging Starlight Buttress, or have a full on adventure on 1,200-foot domes, this book will clearly and concisely get you where you want to go as virtually every route in this book has been climbed and verified first hand by the author. And for you budget-conscious climbers out there – you’ll certainly enjoy the bountiful free camping.
