So last weekend’s snow storm made it pretty much a no brainer to hang out in the Denver area and miss all the I-70 craziness.  A few buddies and I had planned to climb Cristo Couloir on Quandary on Sunday, but with that plan on hold for the time being, I felt the need to get out and do some climbing after all.   Well, turns out the highest point in Denver is only about a 9 mile drive away, so with ice ax and helmet at the ready I called Darcie to go with me to document the occasion.  A little bit of internet research showed that the point was just off a sidewalk off on Kipling in the SW corner of the city.  A 25 foot hike through snow quickly brought us to the top, and I got my summit photo.  Beers were necessary after of course…it’s tradition!

 

Just in case you’re looking for it, the coordinates are:  39.626701, -105.109728

    The highest point in Denver is actually at the I-25 / I-225 interchange with an elevation of 5696′. There is some debate whether this area is “natural” due to a possible man-made buildup of the area during TREX construction.
