Gold Butte Slated to Open for Climbing


The Access Fund has been working with Pitkin County officials and local climbers to reopen climbing access on the recently acquired Gold Butte climbing area near Aspen, Colorado. Previously owned by a private land developer, Gold Butte is now county-owned, and will provide a nice local crag for Aspen area climbers to enjoy. However, before climbers can enjoy Gold Butte, the Access Fund, Pitkin County officials, and local climbers from the Roaring Fork Climbers Coalition need to finalize a Climbing Management Plan, develop new access trails to the crag, and address fixed hardware concerns. Gold Butte is expected to be open for climbing by the end of the summer.
