Description Suggest change

The bouldering at Hartman Rocks can be best described as "limitless". The thousands of acres at Hartman Rocks contain some of the best bouldering in the state of Colorado (yes, the whole state). Similar to bishop and Joshua Tree, the boulders at Hartmans will definately do a number on your fingertips. The problems run the spectrum with technical slabs, powerful crimping, splitter cracks, improbable sequences on 'non-holds', and some of the best mind-bending highballs around. The Areas and Problems listed here barely scratch the surface of the potential at Hartmans. With so many boulders and hoards of new problems going up almost daily it can be hard to keep track of it all. Please use this page to post up new and old problems so we can start documenting this amazing climbing resource.

Bouldering at Hartmans is far from 'new' If any old-timers out there have any good first ascent info or other entertaining stories, let 'em rip!

Getting There Suggest change

Because Hartman Rocks is such a large area and directions can be confusing, try to post good beta photos of the areas to make their identification easier.
