Cloud 9  
 Cloud 9 was rediscovered in October of 1998, but didn't begin to see any development until the snows lifted in late February of 1999. It was a foggy, snowy day when Chip stumbled upon this mile-long hillside of fine Fountain boulders, so the name Cloud 9 seemed to stick. You too will think you're on Cloud 9 after sampling the soft pine-needle landings and super tightly-grained red, maroon and white sandstone.

Eldorado Mountain - the hike to Cloud 9 is 3.5 miles & very steep in places  From smears to huecos, slabs to caves, and endless traverses to spectacular highballs, this place has it all. The rock, though more finely-grained than Flagstaff, is considered a bit sharp and most of the boulders are well-hidden in the trees.

  Unfortunately, we can't give you the full beta right now, due to sensitive access issues. In this day and age, when climbing areas in America are being closed left and right, it pays to keep a low profile. This philosophy is in keeping with FRB's commitment to cherishing and preserving the limited amounts of virgin rock left to us on the Front Range.
  As soon as access issues are resolved with Cloud 9
we'll give you an update.
