Description

Bootlegger's Boulders is a pile of 30-40 large, great-quality boulders right off the road. It looks like there could be around 25+ problems, plenty of easy/moderate problems and a few potentially hard lines.

This area is really obvious, so I know that people have climbed here before, so please add problems that you know of, and make comments, so I can make corrections, get problem names correct, and give credit to people.

Getting There

Heading west out of Canon City on US Highway 50, from the junction of US Highway 50 and CO Highway 9 go 6.1 miles west There is a fairly large pull-off right next to boulders. Absolutely zero hiking is involved.
