About The Mine Boulders:

Considered by many to the best bouldering in the Telluride area. Located in Telluride's east end, the climbing is high elevation and super scenic, with towering walls and cascading waterfalls everywhere. Mostly conglomerate rock with some other types of sandstone mixed in. Alot of the problems are gently overhanging climbing on pockets and cobbles, but there are slabs, faces and fully horizontal roofs as well. Most people climb on only the first two boulders, but there are lots of good boulders buried further in the woods if you know where to find them.
Nearest town or city: Telluride
Directions: Take Colorado Avenue east out of Telluride for about 1.5 miles to where the pavement ends. Follow the dirt road past the Pandora Mill and up a set of switchbacks. The obvious, large First Boulder will be visible on the right side of the road. Park at a pullout on the left just after this boulder. DO NOT block the road! Your car may be towed.
