WOW, can't believe it took me a year to get here - this area is off the charts good. Aug 30, 2016

This looks awesome. I always figured there should be world-class bouldering in the SLV, but most climbers don't seem to want to go to the trouble. Dec 6, 2010

Boulder City offers tons of potential even with the busted beer bottles and shell casings. This is a superb area although the rock will rip you up. Wish it was the Pagosa side of the pass, as I would probably move my yurt out there. Great camping and never crowded. My wife and I have have spent entire weekends developing and repeating some classic boulder problems while having the entire place to ourselves. Having climbed for 31 years, I can say with no doubt this is a true gem in an unlikely location. Dec 3, 2010
Yep, the GPS coordinates are off. But maybe there is a "Boulder City" at that location in China.... Feb 4, 2010

I think the aerial map/photo link provided is a little off. I think it should be 37.3616,-106.2674 but don't hold me to it. Jun 8, 2009
The ambience provided by busted beer bottles and spent shotgun casings really adds to the area. Oct 24, 2008
