The jagged peaks and extensive wall faces of the San Juan Mountains provide a variety of climbing and bouldering routes. Legendary climbers, from Lynn Hill to Charlie Fowler, have explored the area and help put the San Juan Range on the map as a climbing destination. From classic routes on Ophir Wall to moderate climbs on Pipeline, the climbing is diverse and plentiful.

Warm up at Adventure Rock in Mountain Village. This manmade climbing boulder is located in Conference Center Plaza and is open daily during (weather permitting) from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the summer. Various problems offer challenges for novices to expert climbers.

For those learning the sport or seeking local expertise, a number of guide services are available. Find local trail maps, route information and gear at one of the many sport shops.
