Rock Climbing Safety and Regulations

From Colorado Parks and Wildlife

Stewardship Thursday, September 21, 2023

Rock climbing can be highly rewarding, but it also has the potential to be dangerous. Risks include, but are not limited to, falling, falling rock and other objects, equipment failure, human error, adverse weather, slippery surfaces, and negligence of other users. Colorado Parks and Wildlife does NOT maintain fixed anchors or other aspects of climbing routes. Loose rock, unreliable fixed anchors, and other hazards can exist on any route. Climb at your own risk and remember your safety is your responsibility.

Learn more about climbing regulations and how to reduce risks on the Colorado Parks and Wildlife website.
