Nice bouldering all along the Bear Canyon Trail. Mostly covered by the usual guidebooks. The streambed tends to be shady, while the slopes of Dinosaur Mountain/Nebel Horn can provide sun or shade.

Getting There 

Bear Canyon Trail from Bear Mountain Drive or NCAR.

The approach is 40 minutes +/- but not too much elevation gain compared to other approaches in the Flatirons.

Climbing Season

For the Central area.

Weather station 2.7 miles from here

This thing is too cool not to be described anywhere! I hope I got the FA info correct (info is per Will L. - who usually knows what's up). Perhaps the best problem of its grade in the Flatirons. SDS out steep bulge to a cruxy bit to a jug. Finish with a classic topout on water polished, Fountain formation sandstone. So good! Go do it!...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
