The Skyland Boulders in Crested Butte have been called “The best in Colorado”. However with the remote location, they are a quiet refuge in the tranquil mountain town. People go to Crested Butte to bike and ski, but rarely to climb.

    I had a blast climbing at Skyland! I think that my favorite problem was the Wedge Arete. I was really surprised to find so much fun climbing in CB. Even made a short video about it if anyone is curious to see the spot. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YtdEf0R-tKQ
