The Plethora Boulders host a number of classic problems in an easy-to-get-to location and make for a fantastic workout. The majority of the problems are on the east face and thus receive nice late-morning to mid-day sun in the winter and make for a shady place to climb on a summer evening. The rock, like everything in this section of canyon, is sandstone. Almost all the problems on the east faces are on excellent quality rock. However, dubius stone can be found on the west faces.
From US Highway 50, about 10 minutes from downtown Junction, turn onto CO Highway 141 towards Gateway/Naturita. Take this highway for about 5 minutes until you see the obvious, triangular Fossil Boulder on your right. Pull off here, check out the fossil imprints, and warm up on the easy, super-classic high balls. Then hop back in your car and drive 100' south to the Plethora Boulders.

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
