Description 

The giant slab that faces the boulders in the upper area. The boulders like Pina Colada, Tombstone Spire etc. The Problems are on the backside overhang of the slab I'm calling Moon Rock. I'm sure it has a name but I don't know it.

Getting There 

Park at the Upper Area as for Upper Y Wall. Walk up and past the First Overhang Boulder. First and obvious boulder just North of the parking lot. Walk between boulders on right and the giant slab on your left. Walk Left and up behind the Slab on faint short trail until you see low overhanging traverses with flat landings. Great place to warm up and contrive problems. Offers three traverses, an upper, middle, and lower.

Middle Traverse V1 5  CO : Boulder : ... : Moon Rock
I love this traverse, would be three stars but for a loose hold. Start low and left and traverse across the middle line with long reaches to crimps. Cushion landings with shade and solitude. Stay off the loose flake near end marked X. A hard, butt-scraping, low traverse can be done as well dismissing the middle line's holds. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
