Description 

The boulder that sits on the hillside, north of the main rock, has a bunch of okay stuff.

Getting There 

As you pass through the town of Minturn, heading south, you come to a bridge on your left that spans the river. Turn left, cross the bridge and park in the dirt lot opposite the town cemetery.

Many variations in the V3-V4 range are possible.

From left to right:
V4 Leftside** Edges to a seam in perfect rock, enjoy the stone as it steepens.
V3 Center face** Follow the ramp to the steep crack finish.
V0 Warm up
V2 Grand Finale* traverse L2R on north face; finish straight up for top out. 25 feet
