Regarding Shelf Road....are you talking about the road that goes South a little bit south of Cripple Creek? Is there a website for updated info as we approach the weekend?

Thanks!

Thought thats what you were talking about but wanted to make sure. Do you know where it is closed at? I mean...way up top or once you get down in a ways? I don't find any info via google.

Thanks again!

Edit....oh! I see....FB. Will poke around there.

Please keep this updated cuz I can't find anything on FB either. Reason I'm interested is some friends were planning to go climbing down there over the weekend and currently they're out of town so likely not aware....although I emailed em a link to this thread.

Thanks.
