Drive West on Canyon from Boulder and set your odometer at the bridge just east of the Dome. Drive 8.1mi up the canyon and a little ways beyond Boulder Falls, look for Practice Rock on the north side of the road with a gravel pullout. Park here then head across the creek on the south side of the road via a tree bridge.
To access the routes, hike downstream to the east end of the wall then scramble up an easy ramp to the base of the routes. Descent from the top is via a gully on the west side of the wall.
Weather station 5.5 miles from here

The Dan Levison Community Service Foundation has kindly put in an excellently positioned tyrolean traverse and connecting trail right in at the bottom of the crag.

The tyrol rope was getting pretty scary (multiple coreshots). It has been replaced with two strands of static rope that should be good for a couple more years.
Thanks to everyone who donated rope for the Boulder Canyon tyrols!

Well, I guess "a couple more years" was technically accurate. Only 2 years before someone cut this down. Wish I knew who was cutting these down. The ropes were still in great shape.
I'll try to get out there soon to add new ropes, which will be a pain in the a$$ since the creek is already raging.

I added a new tyrol yesterday (6/2) with some old dynamic rope. I plan to replace it with some static rope soon.
