The Flatirons | Boulder, CO

Rock Climbing
The Flatirons are synonymous with Boulder and the history of rock climbing in North America. It would be hard to find another location in the country where such an extensive variety, from scrambling to hard "Head Point" routes exist so close to a major metro area. They form the backdrop to Boulder and are the centerpiece of Boulder's Open Space system. Gregory Canyon is the perfect place for new climbers to practice honing their skills, and the east faces of the flatirons are an excellent venue for multi-pitch trad adventures with great views of Boulder and the Indian Peaks. The Dome and the Elephant Buttress formations in Boulder Canyon offer world class moderate trad routes minutes outside of downtown Boulder. (something about cracks and learning to crack climb) If you are interested in the art of trad climbing, the abundance of cracks in these areas offer a great classroom for practicing and understanding placements of different climbing protection.
