Getting There 

HP has built a huge building where the parking lot used to be for easy access to this spot. You can bike/hike in from the Vindicator Trailhead for Ute Valley, or carefully park at the new building and hike up to the trail (see maps).

There is a green signpost on the trail, where you will head over to the cliffband (you need to climb down to the routes).


This is a cool spot, also part of Ute Valley Park’s large system of broken ridges.

It's about a mile West of the V-Naughts.

The easiest way to spot is area is from a green signpost next to the Ute Valley trail. From there, you head directly south until you come to the ridge. You can scramble down in multiple places.

With some exploring, there are probably more gems hidden in the area.

Thanks for posting about this area. I was bouldering over in the 'main' bouldering area on the west side but hiked over to check out the Green Marker area after that. There's actually quite a few possible spots over there. I'll try to post about them in the future.
