The majority of these boulders are located within the Mt Evans Wilderness Area, which is regulated & patrolled by the US Forest Service. Climber MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Start with a left hand sidepull on the obvious, left-facing flake with feet on the ledge near the ground. Crank up to underneath the roof and get your feet established on the generous slab. Follow the leftward-trending crack under the roof using the well-spaced crimps and locks until you crack pinches off. From here you enter the tricky crux by establishing your foot on the small edge on the now-much-steeper-slab and get a right hand in the last opening in the crack and move the left hand to the first of the lovely lumps (rounded ridges) near the lip with the furthest right (and farthest back over the lip) lump having the best traction. Balancy movement and a good foot way out left once you are established on the lumps will get you to the top.

Location 

Follow the trail past "Maker's Mark" and "Ben's Arete" down and around the 90 degree, left turn around the big boulder northwest of those problems. The north face of this boulder has an obvious roof with a crack underneath it. The problem starts off the trail with hands on the obvious, left-facing flake.

Protection 

Pad on the ground, pad on the rock on the other side of the trail, and a spotter. Clean falls right onto the trail.
