Description

This area is host to great bouldering just off the road as well as a few small crags jutting out of the hillside above. Its high altitude makes it a good hang on all but the warmest of summer days.

Getting There

From Aspen, drive CO-82 up Independence Pass 11 miles to one of two large pullouts on the left. Directions to each of the crags in the Upper Boulderfield Area begin from these pullouts.
