​Climbing Access at Beddows Dome in Southern Colorado


The Southern Colorado Climbers Resource Action Group (SoCO CRAG) and the Access Fund are pursuing climbing access at Beddows Dome, a granite trad climbing area near Cañon City, Colorado. The property is managed by the Colorado State Land Board, which commonly leases land to raise money for state education initiatives. We have submitted a lease application to the Colorado State Board of Land Commissioners and are awaiting the final hearing on September 5th. If approved by the Commission, a small portion of Beddows Mountain would be leased to SoCO CRAG and insured by the Access Fund, offering a new traditional climbing area to southern Colorado climbers, as well as a resource for other recreational groups like hikers and wildlife viewers.

Stay tuned for more details.
