BETA PHOTO: Prospect Mountain Bouldering Zones.


This is a random assortment of fun boulder problems scattered around Prospect Mountain. They are worth an afternoon session if you don't have time to drive out of town.

They are separated into different pages to facilitate finding the problems.

Getting There 

Head out of town on CO Highway 7, and turn right on Peak View Drive at a big church. Head past Curry Drive (the road that leads to the Thumb/Needle parking area), and park at a teal water treatment plant. Locate a trail just behind the building that leads uphill. If you follow this all the way, you will wind up on the very top of Prospect Mountain. The boulders are within 10 minutes from the parking area.

FYI, the overhead map you provided that shows the three bouldering zones shows the Equalizer Boulder in Zone 3, but the Equalizer Boulder is currently listed in Zone 2 on the root menu on the left.
