Two massive boulders with great lines and perfect flat landings, and they sit in an incredibly beautiful spot next to the South Platte River. I bouldered there for a couple of hours on a Sunday and I was all by myself - no sign of any other climbers.
From Colorado Springs, take US 24 to Woodland Park, and then on to the small town of Lake George. Overall, its about 40 miles from Colorado Springs to Elevenmile. Turn left at Lake George to enter Elevenmile Canyon. From the ranger kiosk at the entrance, it is 6.5 miles to the boulders. Park at the wide spot and wade the river to get to the boulders. Use some judgement on whether this is safe - in a high runoff year it could be tricky. I waded it in May of 2002 and it was no problem.

Well, it's on the northeast arete of the west twin...the standup is good, but the real money in in the sitdown. Start on the obvious sloper, and either move up and left to the beautful slopers, then toss right to join the standup, or move up and right through a really small crimp and toss left into the standup (about V7 either way)....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
