Getting There 

Park one-eight of mile past the parking are for Animal World at a 10% grade sign on the creek side of the road.

For the upper areas:
Cross the creek at a boulder and then angle left up a short gully. Reach a saddle, and then continue going left on a ledge to the climbs.

For the lower routes:
From the "10% Grade" sign, walk downstream about 200' until you see the climbable-looking, west-facing rock that is very close to the river (about 20' vertical feet above it). Cross here to find Fearless Leader (left side), and Gomer Pyle (right side). Use the scree gully to the right of Gomer Pyle to access the other rocks in this area.

Fearless Leader location as seen from the road 200 yards past the Animal World parking lot.

Fearless Leader 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c  CO : Boulder Canyon : Lost Rock
This route name was inspired by the Bullwinkle J. Moose thread on Super Topo. It brought back memories from my childhood, especially since I grew up in Frostbite Falls, Minnesota (well at least Minnesota). Crux is from 2nd to 4th bolt. Climbing is continuous and may require a fearless leader....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
