Rock Climbing At Rocky Mountain National Park To Chasm Falls

The official map handed to us by the very pleasant Park Ranger at the Fall River Entrance Station on Colorado Hwy 34 is titled “Roaming the Rockies” – which of course we thought was a grand idea! Our 1930 Ford Model A street rod had adjusted to the mountain air and was ready to roll!

After checking out the map — like a good navigator should — we decided on our Y’dstoti route: Old Fall River Road. It was marked as unpaved, “one-way up only; closed in winter,” was nine miles long with falls, trails, and switchbacks. The perfect fall drive!

We couldn’t help stopping at Chasm Falls to do a little rock climbing and experience Rocky Mountain National Park up close and personal. Y’dstoti – its worth the trip!
