About the book
You'll find everything you need to have a great time climbing in the 3rd edition of our guidebook, Boulder Canyon Rock Climbs! With adjacent Dream Canyon, also covered in the book, it’s an all-season, granite-lover’s paradise. Crags are accessed mere minutes from downtown. You will not pay entry fees. Spend an afternoon working on your most recent project, or grapple with a multi-pitch traditional climb and have the opportunity to get benighted. There is something for all climbing levels and styles with plenty of sport and traditional climbs from 5.4 to 5.14. There are multi-pitch routes up to 400 feet long and world-famous boulder problems. You'll be challenged with delicate slabs, splitter cracks, burly roofs, and overhanging walls. Boulder Canyon climbing has it all! This book gives you all the beta you need for over 1800 routes and variations, with improved route photos, extensive new mapping, and the inspiring photography that you expect from Wolverine guides. While you’re enjoying this sweet little canyon you might notice shiny new bolts and remarkable trail work at some of the more popular crags.

Bob D’Antonio has been climbing since the 1970s. Originally from Philadelphia, he began climbing at the Gunks, soon exploding West in a new-routing frenzy! Colorado areas where Bob contributed heavily include: Garden of the Gods, 11-Mile Canyon, Penitente Canyon, the South Platte, Shelf Road, and Independence Pass. Bob currently lives in Taos, New Mexico, with his wife, Laurel, and is the proud father of three children: Jeremy, Adam, and Rachael. He continues to put up new routes in the Rio Grande gorge near Taos, and is the third-best bird photographer on Facebook.
Jeff Achey spent the best years of his youth climbing in the Boulder area, then went on to a career writing about climbing. He lives with his wife Amber Johnstone in western Colorado, where he splits his free time between bolting chossy cliffs and directing the creative at Wolverine Publishing.
Adam Brink has spent over two decades climbing and guiding in Boulder Canyon. He lives in Boulder with wife Jessica Jaret, and is dad to two amazing kids, Willa and Nico.
Peter Beal has been bouldering in the canyon over a decade.

Peter lives out in eastern Boulder County with his wife Caolan and daughter Sophia.
