Hobo Boulder 

  • This is currently under construction as none of the problems have been sent yet. The problems named below are just approximations until we get a consensus on them.*

This overhanging boulder is south-facing and very secluded. You look down on the town of Keystone when looking south from the rock. There are a range of problem difficulties on this rock from VO to V9? There are various SDS and direct start problems. I will need some feedback on a consensus of the problems.

Getting There 

From I-70 in Dillon/Silverthorne, go East on US Highway 6. Just as you pass the Keystone sign, turn left onto Landfill Road. Go up the road exactly two miles (the road will pass a shooting range on the left and will then turn into dirt). At exactly two miles, you will come to a Y in the road, go right. Go about a half to three quarter of a mile. On your right is a trailhead called Incline Trailhead, but it is not marked with its name. Go about 150 yards on it heading east/southeast, then cut left off the trail and traverse alongside of the hill heading east. The overhanging boulder will appear about 125 yards east of where you cut off the trail.

This is the SDS start of the problem.  Notice the small rock, DO NOT USE FOR YOUR FEET!

Dirtball McGee V4-5 6B+  CO : Keystone Colorado-Landfill ...
This is a SDS problem. It starts the same way you would start Don't Talk Trash To The Garbage Man and works straight up over the small bulge. Start how you want on the giant undercling (as undercling sidepull or crimps). Your feet must remain on the large boulder, and you cannot use the small rock under the main boulder for your feet. The first moves from the start will go straight up to slopers. Then reach further over the bulge and top out. The crux is either the first move or the top out and/or both! ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
