Approximate location via GPS is:

Latitude: 39° 2'2.53"N

Longitude: 108°36'12.85"W

The location is approximate but within two minutes' walk, North or South of location, or up toward the road, or down toward the valley.

First, I am pleased to have finally found this area. In reading comments regarding this small sector, it certainly seems that a goodly sum of climbers have looked far and low for these rigs with no luck. Secondly, I was also psyched to have ticked The Holy Cross during my first session on it. The line really is comprised of solid, black, desert varnished stone. The beveled left hand crimp near the end is just quality! At any rate, it's a great problem for the Junktown scene. Try not to worry about the guillotine hanging out behind your head!

P.S. I have really good directions for getting to this boulder. Maybe it's just me, but I don't know any climbers who have a GPS, let alone know how to use the damn thing should they get their hands on one. It's actually not all that hard. You can drop me a message on this site if you want the info. I don't use this site much at all anymore, but I'll be sure to check it every now and then.
