There are some good problems on this side rock. Quality. Bring a crash pad if you're topping out as it's overhanging and slopey on top. There is a good landing though on the soft pine needles. The problems up the center are V1-V2ish, and there is a V4 traverse.

Getting There 

This is located at the far North end of the Grocery Store Walls.

This problem starts left of Up Staged at two low pockets. Good balance, crimps, and a sloper lead to the top. I found this problem a little harder than Up Staged....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

There are endless routes on this boulder. I have spent countless hours exhausting every problem from this piece of conglomerate and can tell you there is not one bad problem on here. I think the hardest problem on here goes at v5. It starts on the middle jug, moves left up to a small ledge, then to the two almost invisible slope/crimps and the square cobble at the top. Have fun kids.

There is a great overhanging problem that lies about 100 feet straight west from the rock in the picture. The rock kinda looks like a big mushroom if you ask me. Start under the roof on the horizontal crack. Jump for the cobble out of sight and behind you on the lip of the overhang, cross through to the pocket, heel hook right, etc... enjoy!! One of my favorite problems here. I highly recommend it. Too bad all my friends have been to sketched to try the first move. Suckas!!!!

There is a badass variation that runs up the middle on the standard holds, then goes up to a small cobble and traverses over on micro sloper edges and tops out. Make sure the two micro edges are clean. V3-5?

The pic I posted was taken on the opposite side of the boulder shown above. A fun juggy traverse under the roof. Good warm up for the other problems around this area.
