Classic Dali, Lama, Mt. Evans.
|The majority of these boulders are located within the Mt Evans Wilderness Area, which is regulated & patrolled by the US Forest Service. Climber MORE INFO >>>|
Lama climbs the highly featured flake system in the middle of the south face, just right of Dali. This is one of the best V-Easy problems at Mt Evans, with fun moves on excellent rock.
Begin sitting on a large boulder immediately below the flake. This start is a few feet higher than the start of Dali. It would be possible to start lower, which would up the grade and reduce the quality. Lieback up the flake until it bends to the right. Traverse right along the top edge of the flake to a precarious stance on less than ideal holds. Make a short stab up to the heavily chalked block just below the lip. Drop down or mantle easily over the top.
Immediately right of Dali, climbing the obvious flake system that splits the south face of the Dali Boulder.
At least one pad to cover the boulder at the start.

FWIW, a lot of folks call this The Dali Seam. Most folks probably don't care what you call it. This would be a really good warmupy thing, if not for the annoying boulder behind and beneath you ... oh well. The lower start, IIRC, is approximately V3.
