Montezuma Tower at Garden of the Gods

You wouldn’t know it from yesterday’s blizzard warning, but earlier this week it was a sunny 70 degrees in Colorado Springs, and with daylight savings suddenly making the days a reasonable length again,┬áit was a perfect opportunity to get a little climbing in after work.

Montezuma Tower in the middle of Garden of the Gods is a super classic, super moderate climb with just enough exposure and runout spaces to make it interesting. And of course, it offers up some pretty awesome views.
