This is a great bouldering area!!! Some the the slickest cobbles anywhere!! I believe the type of rock is a sandstone with a matrix of quartzite cobbles. I know there is one pay campground on the river closer to carbondale although I am sure htere is free camping elsewhere just dont know where. i am no expert on this area just know its very classic and was wanting to put it on this site with the hope others could contribute more information.
Carbondale head south going towards Redstone. Turn At the first pullout on the left for the town of redstone (the north most) after passing the fire station slow down and start looking for a dirt road on the left leading into the aspens. Its really a nondescript dirt road so if it looks really well used its not the one.

The directions above are a little off. From Carbondale, take the first road to the town of Redstone. This road goes through town on the east side of the river while 135 is on the west. Once on this road, drive a ways (maybe a mile or so?) There is a pullout on both sides of the road just before you start hitting the houses of Redstone. The pullout mountainside (east) is bigger. Take the trail up the mountain about 50 yards. Then turn left on this trail heading north, parallel to the mountain. About 200 yards (more?) there will be a trail heading up the mountain again on your right. Take that for 50 yards to the two boulders mentioned above.
Also, don't forget that just north of town on the way to Carbondale, the road goes through a tightening of the canyon. Just before there, down by the river is an awesome hot springs which makes for great night soaking.
