This rock lies just west of Practice Rock and rarely sees traffic(we've never seen anyone on it, ever). However, the two routes on it are rather pleasant, and its unpopular nature we don't believe to be reflective of the climbing value for it.
L->R these are:
A. Bloody Monday
, 10+, 1p, 50', bolt & gear.
B. Electra Glide
, 8+, 1p, 70', gear.
C. Catch You Later
, 9+, 1p, 70', gear.
Go 8.1 miles up the canyon, about 300 yards past Boulder Falls. Park at a turnout on the right side, directly below Practice Rock. Electra Glide is about 20 yards beyond Practice Rock; look for the tree rising from the summit of the rock.
Climbing Season For the Boulder Canyon area.
Weather station 5.5 miles from here

: Electra Glide
Start on the left side of a block, going up an easy crack. Move up and right across a face to an undercling, and then up a slot into an overhanging, left-facing dihedral. The move up is off an absolutely wicked 2-finger 1-digit finger jam.Addendum: The flexing flake has gotten much worse over the years. Per Tony B, the flake has been cleaned off, making this much safer....[more] Browse More Classics in CO

Maybe it's just me but the top-rope access is pretty crappy (no well-defined trail). You'll be doing some bushwacking if you don't watch where you're going.

Beware! The flexing flake on Catch You Later has gotten much worse over the years. It is hard to understand how this death torpedo is even attached to the rock- and now it moves with the amount of finger pressure needed to grab a pencil. Scary and threatening to climbers, belayers, and autos below- not recommended.
Another good option while at this splendid little piece of stone is to TR "Goof Roof", which lies between Electra Glide and Catch You Later. super-fun moves- probably 10+/ 11-.
