BETA PHOTO: Pool of Plenty area map. Update 1.2.
The Pool of Plenty encompasses a huge area with a lot of rock. Some of the quality is poor, but much of it is very solid. Unlike any other area at Nine Mile, Pool of Plenty shares one of its boundaries with private land. Please be considerate when climbing in and around these locations.
A handful of the boulders are located in an oasis-like area that possess some quality problems. It is a bit secluded, and the presence of water gives it a novel feel in comparison to other Nine Mile bouldering areas. As a note, some of the boulders/landings in this area, at least where the creek is, are possibly inundated during spring runoff.
From the US-50/CO HWY 141 intersection, the pullout is 7.3 miles on road right. There is a mailbox at the pullout (it's the only mailbox on Nine Mile Hill).
Be respectful as the access road is a driveway for a residence on the far side of the canyon.
