Classic! 

Bomber pocketed limestone, high problems, and a short approach make the Cemetery Blocks a perfect warm-up for any outing to Red Cliff.

Getting There 

As you pass through the town of Minturn, heading south, you will come to a bridge on the left that spans the river. Turn left, cross the bridge and park by the town cemetery.

There are two obvious boulder; the one 200 yards up in gully is the main attraction. The block on the hillside has a few mediocre and okay problems.

Hike up past the north side of the cemetery--5 minutes from car.
