Boulder, CO offers rock climbing enthusiasts some of the best spots for bouldering in the entire country, and the team at Fisher Acura is here to help you find luxury sport vehicles with the performance capacity to get you to one of these spots, as well as a list of some of our favorite rock climbing locations in the area. Check them out here, and then grab your carabiners, cam set, and momentum harness and head out for an adventure.

  1. Mount Sanitas – We put this one at the top of our list because it’s a great option for people who are just getting into bouldering. An easy jaunt off the Sanitas Trail, this spot is a great place to train, an easy place to get to if you’re in a hurry, and plenty of fun for newbies and time-crunched veterans alike.
  2. Upper Dream Canyon – Take the trip down from one of the trailheads into the riverbed and make your way to the incredible and diverse rock climbing problems at Upper Dream Canyon, home to some of the most incredible bouldering views the area has to offer.
  3. Animal World – This is one of the more trafficked rock climbing spots in Boulder, CO—and for good reason. It has some of the most challenging, enigmatic routes around—we recommend the “Upper” route. Those just looking to dip their toes in, however, will find easier options on the “Lower” cliff.
  4. Flagstaff Mountain – We reserve the challenge of Flagstaff Mountain for the end, because this isn’t a spot for dabblers. Bring your experience and your courage to these routes, which are largely reserved for those who know their way around a crag.
