The jagged peaks and extensive wall faces of the San Juan Mountains provide a variety of climbing and bouldering routes. Legendary climbers, from Lynn Hill to Charlie Fowler, have explored the area and helped put the San Juan Range on the map as a climbing destination. From classic routes on Ophir Wall to moderate climbs on Pipeline to the Via Ferrata, the climbing is diverse and plentiful.
