We did it. After two years of working with the State Land Board and the local land lessee, SoCO CRAG was allowed one day of legal climbing access to Beddows Dome. A special use permit was issued for one day of use on July 26. A total of 18 Westcliffe and Pueblo climbers met up for a spectacular time on the domes cracks, plates, and chickenheads. Seven trad lines were lead by local rockstars. A fantastic time was had by all on the best trad lines in the Wet Mountains. Thanks to all the help the Access Fund provided in terms of technical support and event insurance. This was a one time event, with climbing still seen as an illegal use of Beddows Dome. We hope that this single day of access will be seen by the state and our partners as a positive example of compatible use for future expansion.
