Eds. This area could be split into Redstone Boulders (in the forest where the Stein, Big Easy, Barnacle, Butter, and Weider Boulders are), and River Boulders (where Corkscrew, Land Shark, River Boulders, and Riverside Boulders are.)

Getting There 

Carbondale head south going towards Redstone. Turn at the first pullout on the left for the town of Redstone (the northern-most). After passing the fire station, slow down and start looking for a dirt road on the left leading into the aspens. It's really a nondescript dirt road, so if it looks really well used, it's not the one.

Per chris deulen: go through Redstone (follow the signs). Immediately outside, there's a sign (and a parking lot, on the right, none on the left, mind you) that says, "Redstone Boulders." Park here. Go back to the right 20 feet and take the road up to a trail on the left. Then follow directions as described by Kirk. You can't miss the trail on the right that goes up mountainside. Go past the first boulder to get to the Stein Boulder.

Just right of the offwidth. Start on twin slopers at two feet. Slap and hug your way up the two aretes to the pebbles on the ledge. From there dyno for the finishing hold up and right. Probably the best problem on the boulder if you have the wingspan....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
