BOULDERING – October 5

Garden of the Gods is pretty well known for its roped rock climbing, but there are plenty of opportunities for bouldering as well!

Bouldering is a form of climbing that keeps things lower to the ground and uses minimal gear. It is a great way to challenge yourself mentally and physically, and is also a great option for those who want to climb but have a complicated relationship with heights! We will be heading out to the Snake Pit bouldering area at Garden of the Gods, where climbers of all skill levels can find challenging and fun bouldering problems.
