Getting There 

This is in the general area of Surprising Crag and Sport Park, which lies on the S side of the road. Park as for Sport Park, cross the creek, head left or E. Look for a slightly-overhanging wall low. 3-5 minute approach. You can access it from Surprising Crag, but that is more difficult.

From Peter Franzen "Overhung Wall...lies below Surprising Crag; these can be approached by heading downstream (N) shortly after crossing the creek, then heading uphill to the crags."

Guidebook 

Mark Rolofson has an excellent Boulder Canyon Sport & Adventure Climber's Guide, Volume II, The Upper Canyon. Consider it for more details.

Warm Up 5.11 6c+ 23 VIII- 23 E4 5c  CO : Boulder Canyon : ... : Overhung Wall
Climb up a bolted line - pass 2 bolts just left of and overlap, and then clip a third before making a move up and right out onto the next face over. Clip another bolt, head up to a bulge above where a 5th bolt, and the anchor can be found several moves below the top of the crag. This has fun climbing, but it is short. At least it's not manufactured.......[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
