The majority of these boulders are located within the Mt Evans Wilderness Area, which is regulated & patrolled by the US Forest Service. Climber MORE INFO >>>


Start with both hands on the awesome "Tongue" hold on the overhanging arete of the boulder. Tricky feet and core tension gets you off the ground and up to the pinch with a great thumb catch. Some amazing footwork positions you to shoot for the slot just below the lip after which you can reach the nobs above the lip. One of two heelhooks will set you up for the crux topout. Get burly or mantle elegantly, your choice!!!


See the area description. Start on the amazing "Tongue" hold.


A pad for the start, a pad on the boulder under the lip mantle and a spotter are sufficient.
