Mountain Project ‘Favs’

Mountain Project (www.mountainproject.com) has turned into a valuable resource over the years.  Most recently, I have found within it a social networking related source of information:  climbs that many other people call their ‘favorites’.  Heretofore, I have relied on guide book authors for identification of ‘classics’…somehow that seemed right until now.  Below is a list of Mountain Project Boulder/Estes area favorites (as of 2011) rated 5.9 or less that I haven’t done (as of 2011) AND that I would like to do someday.  Other than the Flatiron climbs, only a few overlap my other goal lists, so I’ll add this list of targets.

GREEN means still unclimbed

RED means I ticked it.
