Description Suggest change

This area is shady in the aspen trees; it has good rock quality. There are a number of nice boulders here. They are covered in Colorado Bouldering.

Great camping can be found a couple miles south of this area along Homestake Road / CO 703

Getting There Suggest change

Take I-70 to the Minturn/Redcliff exit (#171). Follow the road crossing over the big Red Cliff bridge. After a little turn you'll see a big parking area on the rigth - park there. Directly across the road there is a dirt 4x4 road leading up to the boulders.Per Bob Robinson: Take US Highway 24 south from I-70 over the Red Cliff Bridge (i.e., tall large green steel arch bridge that spans the Eagle River 200' below)..5 mile after crossing the bridge the parking is on your right in the dirt pullout/median between Water Street and US Highway 24. Study a Google map of the area, and you'll see what I am talking about.On the map, you'll see a road across from the pullout called "Powerline Road". This is the old 4x4 trail to the Klettergarden.You can even do a street view on Google Maps of this area and get a great idea of what it looks like from the road. You can even look down the path to the boulders from US Highway 24. Pretty sweet.The total mileage from I-70 to the parking area is 10.5 miles.
