Eliminator Boulder Rock Climbing
Eliminator Boulder from afar.
A giant, house-sized boulder just downhill from the Ship's Prow, the Eliminator Boulder plays host to some of the classic John Gill problems for which Rotary is famous, in addition to some fun warm-ups and a few project-worthy lines. There really is something for everyone on this rock; from the balancy, tall Eliminator North Slab Center
and powerful Beached Whale
at the lower end of the V-spectrum, to the Gill classics Left Eliminator
and Right Eliminator Prow
, and on up to local testpieces like the proud The Moon Arete
or seemingly impossible Meathook
. It would be easy for a visitor to Fort Collins to get a full afternoon of bouldering in and never leave the Eliminator.
Follow the trail that heads south from the parking lot and around the south end of the Rotary ridgeline. Continue North, passing the Cat's Eye Face and Bolt Wall, turning left as for Talent Scout
. Follow the trail northwest, turning due north before the trail reaches Punk Rock
, heading towards the Right Eliminators.
Alternately, one can hike almost to the Ship's Prow and head sharply left and downhill over some rocks to a cave at the southeast corner of the Eliminator, where easy access to Beached Whale (in the cave) or the North face problems (to the right) can be had.
