Jaws Boulder Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Mike punching Jaws in the gills.
The Jaws Boulder is located at a pullout along the left side of the road as one heads up the pass from Aspen. About 25-30 ft. tall, it is home to one of the classic problems in the area, Jaws. Great stone.
Head up Independence Pass from Aspen. About 15 or so minutes up the pass, the road splits off to the right joining back up a few hundred ft. later. Follow this split right and park. The boulder is located down and right from the road near the river.
