We spent one day of our Red Rocks trip bouldering at Oak Creek Canyon. The hike is much longer and the problems are much less concentrated than at the Kraft boulders. But the problems are high quality, and the scenery is worth the approach. Tom Moulin's Southern Nevada Bouldering guide makes the lines easy to find. The photos tell the story better than writing can.
Mt. Wilson deserves photo alteration. The sandstone Mt. Moran.

Bouldering doesn't have to be high, or even that difficult, to be terrifying. "Brokeback Yoga" makes you feel insecure, committed, and vulnerable all at once.
