Description 

This boulder contains one of the best jug hauls on the Front range. Numerous variations start from the well chalked sit start jug. An excellent problem starts on the South face, takes the corner and traverses around to the West to top out on the jug ladder. Be solid topping out or step off--falling off the top would be ugly.

Getting There 

Go to the south side of the main parking area. Hike South West towards a picnic table, the first big boulder you come to is Beer Barrel. This rock is directly below and to the west of Beer Barrel and is easily identified by a 45 degree overhang on its West Side.
