Description

Piano Boulders is a popular bouldering-only site within Pineridge Natural Area. You can find a list of routes and other climbing beta at Northern Colorado Climbers Coalition or the Mountain Project

There are no dogs allowed in the Piano Boulders climbing area.

Due to natural resource damage and crowding concerns, the Natural Areas Department changed the fencing and reduced the parking area in June 2020. View the sign with the boundary.

Please respect the regulations posted on the signage and be a responsible steward.
