The Skyland Boulders in Crested Butte have been called some of the finest in Colorado. They are located along the Upper Loop trail, which skirts the base of Mt. Crested Butte.
Please be sure to access the boulders correctly. In addition to not parking in the Skyland residential area, there are a couple other considerations.
The best way to access the boulders is via bicycle (or hiking) the Tony's Trail, which leads right up to the Hone Stone. This is easily found by taking Elk Ave. east, until it turns into a dirt road (there is a large parking lot at the 4 way by the Chamber of Commerce to park your vehicle). Dogs are not allowed on this trail, however, and climbers have received fines for having dogs in this area, as it is used for ranching.
If you do have dogs and want to bring them up, the best way to do that is to access the Skyland Boulders from the town of Mt. Crested Butte, via the Upper Loop. A parking area is available on Hunter Hill Rd.
In addition to the Skyland Boulders, there are several fine areas in the greater Gunnison Valley, including Taylor Canyon, Spring Creek Canyon, Hartman Rocks, and the mighty Black Canyon.

Another one of the few classics of Skyland. Start in the center of the boulder. Traverse over to a large rail, head up and right, and dyno to the lip. Spotters and pad recommended. If your not used to granite, this one will destroy your fingertips nicely. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
