Auto Belay

The new auto belay system will allow the experienced climber to come in and get that needed workout on the pinnacle without needing to have a partner to belay them. To be able to use the auto belay system during non-open climbing hours climbers will need to go through our belay certification process. For more information on open climbing hours (see above), the belay certification process and the auto belay system please contact the Front Desk at BPRC at 720-880-1100. Belayed certified climbers can climb anytime the facility is open, however;  Rec Center staff reserves the right to close certain routes or the entire pinnacle, if there is other EPRD programming in need of the space and/or the pinnacle itself.
