Description 

These boulders are so named because of the wild corn that grows here. There are two main boulders here, one of which offers about seven problems and the other which really only offers one viable problem. The rock is pretty good on the east boulder and not so good on the west. The problems themselves are generally pretty easy but make use of fun crimps and small pockets. As previously mentioned, there are eight or nine problems, but I will list only the best. The beta photos show some of the others.

It is likely that these two boulders have been climbed before. If anybody wants to submit first ascent info or other names, I would be happy to change them. We climbed/named these in January 2011, so anything that predates that....

Getting There 

From the notch in the cliffband (see main area description), turn west and follow the creekbed upstream for about 0.1 mile. These two boulders are right on the creekbed, you won't miss them.

Burial Ground V1 5  CO : Grand Junction Area : ... : Indian Garden Boulders
Hidden on the bushy north face of Indian Garden East is this great little problem. We missed this thing the first time we came here. Start on two low, small holds with legs out wide to avoid a crumbly ledge and move up and to the right. A variation that goes straight up is a little harder....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
