This area has 2 boulders, Critical Mass and King Fin. Critical Mass has its namesake route, a V12. King Fin has a handful of moderates, only some worth putting real work on.

Getting There 

These are approximately 39 miles up the canyon from Ted's place.

An excerpt taken from the NCCC Poudre Canyon bouldering guide:

"Directly across from the Big Bend Campground is the Critical Mass Area. A left turn sends you to Big Bend Campground, a right turn, at the seasonal mail box post, takes you to King Fin and Critical Mass. Drive on the dirt road staying to the left at any turn. The road dead ends at a cul-de-sac with both the Critical Mass and King Fin Boulders visible from the car. "
