Description

Cannon City is might as well be called Pleasantville with its 325 annual days of sunshine basking in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. The weather is consistently much warmer than any other city in Colorado and the climbing isn't half bad either. In fact, Cannon City is a very popular fall, winter, and spring destination because it's nice and sunny when everywhere else is filling in with snow.

The main climbing area in Cannon City is Shelf Road where many new routes have recently been established putting the count up to around 900 established climbs! The climbing is on good vertical limestone and fills the whole range from novice to expert climbs. There is a good mix of both trad and bolted routes as well so really, there's no reason not to climb here unless you don't like limestone or no crowds.
