About RMNP - Fern Canyon:

Fern Canyon is not well known or well-travelled, but it has some of the best and hardest traditional climbs in Rocky Mountain National Park. There are also a handful of excellent bolted routes. Notable climbs include the area classic 3-pitch Days Of Heaven (5.10d), which is on par with the best cragging routes anywhere. Another amazing climb is the Wasp, a thin but continous finger crack that overhangs slightly for nearly a hundred feet.
Nearest town or city: Estes Park
Directions: Use the Beaver Meadows entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. Turn left on Bear Lake Road, then right after a couple miles onto Moraine Park Dr. Follow this to its end (it turns into a dirt road), and park there at the Fern Lake Trailhead.
