Based in the heart of Carbondale, Colorado, Monkey House Carbondale has 2500 sq. ft. of bouldering with 12’-18’ high walls built and designed by Walltopia. We offer bouldering for all levels (V0 to V10+) in an easy-to-follow circuit-set system that is both a great training tool and friendly introduction to the sport. Monkey House Carbondale is also home to Moon, Tension, and Kilter LED Boards to offer endless variation, a climbing specific training facility, and a rental and retail shop. 

Bouldering is non-roped climbing that requires only shoes and chalk to get you on your way. It allows you to learn climbing movement, become strong quickly, and can be very social when working problems in groups! If you’re new to bouldering, our friendly staff will provide you with rental shoes and chalk and a tour of the facility to help you get started!
