Description 

This is the lowest boulder on the regular side, immediately below Spike Rock. Easy problems with OK landings make this a good warm-up or cool down boulder. It gets full sun, so it can be hot.

Getting There 

Approach the same as for Spike Rock or Tree Slab on the sunny side of Morrison.

Per David Tennant: either go directly south from Spike Rock or to further east down the trail and then cut back west. There is lots of brush if coming from Spike Rock.

West Face of 5.8 Boulder V-easy 3  CO : Morrison/Evergreen : ... : 5.8 Boulder
The west face is narrow, 2-3 ft wide. The route follows the west face without the arete on the right or the easy stuff on the left. Good bailouts to the right and left for the timid. Nice balance and crimp problem....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
