Rad Climbs: the Redstone Boulders

These giant, red boulders hidden among a stand of Aspens are sure to suit your bouldering fancy.  Though most of the problems are for the advanced climber, there a few V0-V3 routes along the way.

Looking to cool down after bouldering during one of our sizzling Colorado summer days?  The Crystal River is just across the street from the boulders and features a few boulders of its own on shore.  Same type of rock with the added bonus of a cool dip.

Directions: Head south on Hwy 133 from Carbondale.  Take the first Redstone exit (Redstone Campground) and follow the road until just before town.  Parking and signs for the Redstone Boulder Open Space will be on the left (the river boulders will be along this road about a 1/2 mile before the boulder parking).  Follow the trail about 1/4 to the group of boulders and get your climb on.

For more information, check out some beta on Splitter Choss or get a taste of the boulders from these Rock and Ice photos.
