The Front Range Section covers the whole eastern half of Colorado. Climbing has a rich tradition in this section and still continues to thrive in areas like Eldorado Canyon, the Flatirons, Lumpy Ridge, Rocky Mountain National Park, Shelf Road, and hundreds more.

Meet Your Section Chair:

 Carol Kotchek has 30+ years climbing experience: starting with the painter-pants era, through the lycra phase, and into the "Just Love to Climb" mentality. Her 15 minutes of fame came as the cover girl on the old City of Rocks guidebook. She has been active in climbing stewardship and is currently on the Board of the Flatirons Climbing Council and Boulder Climbing Community. Carol is also Accountant for the AAC and organized the last two International Climbers' Meets, in Indian Creek and Yosemite.
