The Piano Boulder along with the West Facing ridge it sits along offer a handfull of easy to moderately difficult bouldering lines. With the dam construction projects, the area has seen increased traffic now that is among the few remaining bouldering locales with a short approach accessible from Fort Collins. The classic traverse of the Piano Boulder (V5) is among the harder lines here. Quite a few easy traverses and up problems exist on the ridge.
Getting There [Edit]
From Overland Trail in Fort Collins head West on CR 42C near Hughes Stadium. After the curves and hill turn left on CR 23, follow until the current road block above the Spring Canyon Dam. Park on the left and find the main trail to the left (don't use the many social trails immediately ahead of the parking area).
