Description 

This boulder is hard to miss. It is on the right side of the road and its large overhanging face is very impressive. Probably some of the best sandstone in the canyon. All the lines on its east face are classic!

Getting There 

From US Highway 50 (going towards Delta from Grand Junction) turn right onto CO Highway 141. Follow this for about 3 miles until you see the Fossil Boulder, (hard to miss) a large, pyramid-shaped boulder on the right. Either park here or continue up a ways. Either way, the plethora boulder is on the right hand side of the road 75 yards south of the Fossil Boulder.

Climbing Season

This is perhaps the best boulder problem at the Plethora Boulders and should not be missed. It consists of big moves on generally good holds above an excellent landing. Start sitting on a long, angling hold and make a big move up to a blocky jug. Move right out the horizonal crack feature to a hueco and then up to the lip/arete above. Make a move left on the arete to a large hold and rock over. Quickly descend off the south face so you can do another lap!Variation: Start a few feet to the l...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

I uploaded a new beta picture trying to recreate the old one. Probably not as accurate and useful, but at least it's something!
