Description 

A great bouldering area in all seasons but the summer as it can get extremely hot. A good place for beginners and the experienced boulderer as their are some classics from V0 to V6.

Getting There 

From I-70 get off in Grand Junction on US Hwy 50 heading south. A few miles out of junction,(and you will know when you are out since it all the sudden turns very desert like), you will come to CO Hwy 141. Make a right hand turn,(if you are heading south on US Hwy 50), towards the town of Naturita. Travel down this road about 5 miles and you will first see the fossil boulder on your left about 25 yards off the road.

This is perhaps the best boulder problem at the Plethora Boulders and should not be missed. It consists of big moves on generally good holds above an excellent landing.

Why does rc.com state that the Fossil Noulder is off limits to climbing? Anyone know about this? Hoax? BLM commando enforcement?
