A good little chill spot after the hike. Good prob...
This area has slick granite climbing with a lot of potential HARD boulder problems in the area. It is comparable to Castle Hill.
Go to the Wildwood trailhead, hike toward Liberty Cap, take a left at the fork, go 1/4 mile then descend 500 feet.

Very tricky.Start on micro crimps and figure out how to pop your left foot up on the rock and set a heel hook - you feel really insecure setting that foot. ifficult, especially if your not flexible. Fom there, make a series of fun moves up and around the lip to the apex of the boulder.Possible sit start to the route - but very very hard....[more] Browse More Classics in CO

So, getting to this do you hike clear up onto the bench below Liberty Cap buttress and then descend? That seems like the only way to do it. I am just hoping for a somewhat shorter approach.

F**K this area... the annoying ass hike is not worth the crappy quality of rock. Completely blank faces all over the place - so sad.
ALSO BE CAREFUL!!!!
When I was up last we encountered RATTLESNAKES!
Was scary, be careful when popping your head around corners looking for lines - with how slippery the rock is, it is easy for them to fall down into the cracks and crevices.
