BETA PHOTO: Meditation Boulder in November.
The Meditation Boulder is a rather squat rock, the centerpiece of which is the Meditation Traverse
, an excellent problem to get warmed up on. The south face of Meditation is home to a handful of tougher problems that, despite being a bit contrived, are fun, steep, and powerful. This is a versatile block, featuring many variations on its main traverse and what seems like dozens of unrecorded short, easy up-and-overs, and it's not surprising to find a bit of a crowd on the Meditation Boulder.
Back in 1995, Bob Horan, in his Fort Collins Area bouldering guide, noted that Meditation's "flat summit makes for a peaceful place to relax while gazing into the still waters below." Indeed, on a nice fall day, when the jet-skiers and speed-boaters have stored their toys for the winter, Meditation Boulder remains an excellent place to relax and take in the foothills.
The Meditation Boulder lies downhill and slightly north of the Eliminator Boulder
. Follow the trail from the south side of the parking lot around the south side of the ridge, turning left on a trail that leads past the Talent Scout
. Continue on this path as it heads northeast, passing the Eliminator Boulder
and reaching Meditation's south face shortly thereafter.

Most traverse starting on the easy East side fof the South Face and traverse counterclockwise around the boulder. Teaches one how to use one's feet, shake out after a pump, and packs in the moves. Among the separate cruxes divided by rests, in order one will encounter, are the thin crimp rail of the east face, ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
