Description

The city of Boulder offers an abundance of quality builders for those who want a quick lap during lunch or have already climbed so much on real rock that looking back towards the city in search of new potential has peaked their interests. New buildings continually pop up, but when did you last see a new mountain pop up? Many buildings across the boulder area have rock textured faces, cracks, and other features that are quite good for pullin' hard on!

Areas nearby:
CU campus - arguably the best buildering spot in town. There are tons of problems from fun boulders under the Engineering Center to X rated highballs on some of the more prominent buildings.

United Methodist Church of Boulder - a well-featured church offering some fun climbing downtown on Spruce and 14th St.

The Rio - not the best quality of rock, a bit chossy at times. Otherwise a great and quick way to the top floor especially if you've forgotten your ID and still want to grab a cold one with the boys/girls.

Best Buy - there are some problems on the outside of the building.

Old Mapleton School - there is a campus problem and a few traverses under windows.

Getting There

This takes a 30-40 minute drive from Denver. The best way to get around town is by bike. In the past decade, things have been getting more crowded...tread lightly. Buildering may not be legal.
